Selected Test Results

What works


  • Play tracks adequately;
  • The sequencer works fine;
  • The sound is good.

What does not

  • There's a glitch while entering the registration code where the Reason 5 loading screen overlay the registration box. You got to type your name, then your organization and paste your registration code, then press enter to bypass that glitch;
  • The menu's still glitchy, but we can fix pressing alt, then down, left and right to navigate between menus;
  • The interface, even unmarking those windows options on Wine configuration, still glitchy, very very glitchy, we can't use the program adequately with that glitch.


What was not tested

  • MIDI Input, and some other emulator, like Bome Keyboard;
  • Opening wav files onto NNXT or other samplers;
  • Recording feature, when I've click on that, the recording box doesn't appear.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Those visual glitches doesn't make the software usable, but in Virtual Box it runs fine.

I found that installing in a 64 bits prefix, the copy paste works.
Besides the menu being not clickable, the other thing that fails are the vertical texts on the rack.
