>I think I'd been playing around with LMMS for a month or so before I made that.
Wow, that's much better than I could have done by that point. It's notable that you successfully avoided the almost irresistible newbie pitfall of soaking eberrything in effects. It's so easy to turn a mix into mud if you're not careful.
>I'd played keyboards and a few other instruments for a year before that though, so I think I just played around with it and recorded it and I decided it was good enough 😋
That must have really helped. I put off getting a MIDI controller for way too long and was stuck using a mouse and keyboard for coming up with ideas.
> I've now got a lot of experience of making simulations of real instruments because of my degree - I was considering playing with these and starting up again, so the nice words mean a lot.
It seems like you've got a lot of potential. What's your degree in?
