Additional Comments

The installation process proceeds flawlessly. First start: FLStudio complains about missing wav-files from the example project, and tries to restore them online. Takes a long time and nothing happens so I cancel it. Starting the program gives only a transparent gray window that can be maximized/minimized but not closed, there are no controls, just gray transparant color, clicks goes right through. Has to use virtual desktop for the window to render. That however works almost perfectly. All tested pluigins except syntmaker which seams to have some rendering problems works well. There are only two issues: 1. The latency (this is almost always a problem with these kinds of programs, but is slower under wine then under windows). By tweaking the settings a bit I could get it a little better, but its hard to play even the simplest tune using the keyboard keys. By using a realtime kernel (or perhaps a very fast computer) and tweaking the niceness and such this issue could possibly be solved, but I did not test that. 2. Keys sticking when using the keyboard to play, this is a problem on windows too, but they appear more sticky under wine. I found a small flaw in Toxic Biohazard: When switching presets, if I try to select the preset 'to the right of the first program' I get this error: "Access violation at adress 0CE742F2 in module 'fldownload.dll'. Read of adress 00000002C.") Once it gave me this error when exiting: "Exception EAccessViolation in module 'rpcrt4.dll' at 0000B10F. Access violation at adress 7E9B10F in module 'rpcrt4.dll'. Read of adress 1009EF2C."

HowTo / Notes

Add Vorbis-Ogg support (I.E. Built-in drum loops and FPC ... etc.)
wine notepad 'C:\windows\system.ini' or your favorite *nix text editor
(*nix path is '~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system.ini')

...And then add this in the drivers32 section:

MSACM.vorbis=vorbis.acm

 Good luck!!!

Reported fixed in wine 1.3.28 and later
