It's not awesome if I can't figure out how to get it working. I'm on Linux. It runs, but I don't know how to use it. Will it load VST plugins on Linux? That's not clear. There's no documentation I can find. I need a basic tutorial. Since I can't get audio out of Reaper on Linux or under VirtualBox on Linux, Helio might be my choice of DAW! If I could figure out how to start using it.
It loads VST's: hover mouse over workspace tab click sax icon ('instruments'), Then do as your told, and click to search instruments! ... you have to scan for vst(i)'s first. Then instantiate the one's you want, or remove what you don't. The rest of the sequencer is like others but more focused on music.
I agree with Simon and smooth, first test it seems awesomeawesome.
