What works

Most software functionality works, including:

  • Recording and editing digital audio and virtual instrument clips
  • MIDI in/out
  • Loop library/loop import
  • VST instruments and effects*
  • Piano roll & notation editor
  • Low latency audio using WaveRT or WineASIO (recommended)
  • File open/save and audio file export

*VST compatibility varies between plugins.  Some VSTs will work better than others, and some might not work at all.  Please refer to Acoustica's Wine compatibility document for more information.

What does not

Features that do not work correctly include:

  • Video editing (Mixcraft crashes when trying to create the video preview window)
  • Some of the VST plugins do not behave well and should be avoided.  Please refer to Acoustica's Wine compatibility document for more information.

There are a few minor issues as well:

  • The "new project" number always increments when starting a new session, even if the previous project wasn't saved.  This is possibly due to the use of a Linux filesystem and a difference in the way that empty folders are reported to the OS.  (Acoustica bug #4814)
  • Some drop-down menus extend beyond the screen's boundaries.  The host window must be moved to the very edge of the screen to see all of the options. (Acoustica bug #4880)
