The program mostly works fine, aside from major issues with sound buffering and the wonky instrument editor. You can edit songs and play them back. You can load and save songs. You can edit instruments. You can import WAV files as DMC samples.
What does not
The instrument editor is wonky, whenever you choose an attribute to edit, the editor shows the PREVIOUS attribute you selected before instead of what you just clicked on. There are issues with sound buffering. Using any latency under 40ms for sound buffering fails. The sound buffer often underruns. Sometimes the sound buffer will desynchronize. WAV Preview when loading DMC samples only works for the first click inside the dialog box. In order to get more WAV files to preview, you need to close the dialog box and reopen it. The OK button inside the About dialog box does not close the window (because the about screen is a web browser instead of a standard dialog box) The CHM Help file did not work on wine 1.1.8.
