What does not
(the file could not be openend)
What was not tested
MP3 Playback through winemp3.
I had to install QuickTime to get audio import working. You can set msacm.winemp3=QuickTime.qts in system.ini instead of msacm.winemp3=winemp3.acm, but it seems to be overwritten anyway. To authorize live i had to WINEPREFIX=/home/bmonkey/winebottles/ableton wine "C:\Live 8.1.1\Program\Live 8.1.1.exe" "C:\Authorizelive811.auz" If you get choppy audio, disable pulse audio and set the sample rate to 48000 in live.

Audio / Video File Support
For Codec support install QuickTime with winetricks. Tested with .mp3 audio and .mp4 video files.
I get missing gstreamer 32bit lib errors when I don't do this. So I suppose gstreamer could be an native alternative.
$ winetricks quicktime72
Set your Windows version to Vista or 7 in winetricks to get rid of the black screen bug from QuickTime.
Black Screen on Startup
If you have the screen cleared black on startup when you use QuickTime for codecs, you have encountered Bug 1347.
Set Wine to Windows 7 mode in winecfg to fix this.
Bad Audio Quality
If you have bad audio quality, try a sample rate of 48000 in the audio settings.
If this does not help and you use pulseaudio (default on Ubuntu), kill it. Kill it with fire. (sudo killall pulseaudio).
Make sure the audio test in winecfg sounds good and is played back completely.
Exporting / Rendering Audio
$ git clone git://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git && cd wine
$ patch -p1 < abletonexport.diff
$ ./configure && make -j3
Pass the path to the auz file as first parameter to Live.exe with an absolute Windows path. You only need to do this once.
$ wine Live.exe "C:\foo.auz"
