It's really a shame that the developers never maintain correctly this KVR page.

Several weeks ago they have omitted to alert their users about the release 1.0.1.

And today they once again omit to alert their users about the release 1.0.2.


Do they really want to distribute widely their product? It's a wonder.

Probably happened when LMMS switched form sourceforge to lmms.io. Note, the developers didn't make this page, contact KVR if the information is outdated.

[quote]Can't load .fxb presets, kinda renders the program useless to me[/quote].

There are plenty of other plugin formats that work. If you can help troubleshoot, please join the FXB discussion here: https://github.com/LMMS/lmms/issues/705.
