What works

MIDI input (keyboard and controllers), sequencing, routing, live performance, creating and configuring devices, ReFills, mostly everything.

What does not

Clicking on the menubar won't activate it. However this can be worked around using the keyboard for menu navigation (pressing alt, then using the arrow keys)


What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

There are some minor glitches with modal window handling, like the registration window stays under the splash window, or file dialogs dropping under the main window. All these glitches can be worked around with a decent window manager (like KWin) though.

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.
