New PBIs: MuSE and LMMS

The following PBIs are now available in Software Manager:

MuSE: MuSE is an application for the mixing, encoding, and network streaming of sound. MuSE can simultaneously mix up to 6 encoded audio bitstreams (from files or network) plus a sound card input signal. The resulting stream can be played locally on the sound card and/or encoded as an mp3 bitstream sent to a broadcast server. MuSE offers an intuitive interface to be operated realtime and can run in “slick” mode from command line.

LMMS: LMMS aims to be a free alternative to popular (but commercial and closed-source) programs like FruityLoops, Cubase and Logic giving you the ability of producing music with your computer by creating cool loops, synthesizing and mixing sounds, arranging samples, having more fun with your MIDI keyboard and much more. LMMS combines the features of a tracker/sequencer program (pattern/channel/ sample/song/effect management) and those of powerful synthesizers and samplers in a modern, user-friendly and easy to use graphical user interface.

Thanks to Jesse Smith for creating these PBIs and to Blazing Teens for requesting them.
