View Full Version : [ubuntu] LMMS - importing a beat?

June 3rd, 2011, 03:57 AM

Im new to Ubuntu, but im very excited about everything atm!

When trying to import a finished beat as an .ogg (converted from mp3) file into LMMS im finding the only possible option to be through the Audiofile instrument plugin, but in both the Beat+Bassline and the Song editor it either loops it in weird ways (in B&B) or doesnt play at all when i add the black boxes.

Any tips on how to get my beat working?

You can use the audiofile tool. Make sure the tempo (bpm) and time signature match the project you're importing the track into. I believe you can use this directly in the song editor or in the beat+bassline editor (step sequencer). I usually access beats and samples from the sidepane and directly drop them into the song editor. From there I adjust the length and pitch of the note in the piano-roll tool until it plays the whole sample at the desired speed.
