Additional Comments

it works very good on linux ubuntu but i didn't test it a lot.. follow these few steps: - install wine 1.1.2 - install jack - gdiplus, dotnet20, msxml3, with winetricks ( ) - install cubase studio 4 portable - install wineasio by thise script: #!/bin/bash # by Sandy Sandgreen # Install wineasio 0.7.3 on Ubuntu 8.04 # # Thanks to Jacklab for the wineasio source # but also to David Hayes and AlanPoPo who both made a great howto # echo "This script will download and install wineasio" ; echo "This might take awhile, please be patient" ; echo "First it will install the latest wine, jack and some other usefull stuff" ; sudo apt-get -y install wine wine-dev libjack0.100.0-dev qjackctl build-essential echo "Configuring wine" ; wineprefixcreate -w mkdir -p ~/wineasio_tmp cd ~/wineasio_tmp echo "REGEDIT4" >> alsa.reg echo "[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Drivers]" >> alsa.reg echo '"Audio"="alsa"' >> alsa.reg wine regedit alsa.reg echo "Then it will download the wineasio driver and place it in your wine-folder" ; wget chmod u+rwx sudo mv /usr/lib/wine/ rm -Rf ~/wineasio_tmp regsvr32 wineasio.dll sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ echo "All done :-) ... Now you can use the win-version of EnergyXT2 (or Reaper) with wineasio" ; echo "Press [ENTER] to close the shell" read - start jack - open cubase and select vst connection => link output to correct port devices (try it with a vst press "F11"...) and it should soundz!!!

HowTo / Notes


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.
