Everything works, error is displayed at startup however has not shown any conflicts.
What does not
Have not tested everything as of yet, selecting asio driver did cause a crash however if you select it then click switch then ok, then open driver setup again, it shows correct latency and doesn't crash again. Clicking reset/refresh causes crash.
What was not tested
Have not tested Midi yet using wineasio
Not compatible with wine 1.3.25, 1.3.26, worked with 1.3.24, 1.3.4, 1.3.14. Have not tried 1.3.36.

Installing Cubase Studio 4 is pretty straightforward. Some things you might want to install beforehand:
winetricks gdiplus, dotnet20, and msxml3
wineasio, jackd, qjackctl
Jack along with wineasio helps with latency. Wineasio takes advantage of the asio framework, and connects to jackd.
If you need even lower latency, you can compile a fully preemptive real-time (rt) kernel, using patches, or download a premade rt kernel from the your distro's repositories. You can effective lower the latency anywhere from 3-20 ms, depending on hardware you have, with very few or no input overruns (I don't record). Linux native programs will naturally use less resources. A good program to run thing in real-time without root privledges is "set_rlimits."
To set up Cubase:
1. Configure winecfg. Switch the sound driver to ALSA under the "Audio" tab. This will not affect most other programs in Wine as far as sound is concerned. Also, run the command "regsvr32 wineasio.dll" to register the wineasio driver in wine.
2. In Cubase settings, you must select wineasio as the asio driver.
3. If you want to use a real-time kernel, you need to set qjackctl to run in real-time priority, and then start up Cubase.
