I think it's a valid addition.
I know some people prefer this kind of applications to Qtractor or Ardour.
On their homepage they make reference to LMMS being a Linux alternative to  
FL Studio. In my experience there are FL Studio people, and then there is  
the other kind.
Don't use it myself, but I definitely think it fills a workflow hole for a  
good portion of people.
