Additional Comments

***System Information*** CPU: Intel I7 Extreme 3970X RAM: 64G GPU: NVIDIA GTX 690 VGA Driver: Latest Nvidia (at this time 319.04) ***Installation*** 1. operating on a clean !!!32bit!!! WINEPRFIX (dont know if thats nec. but im using a new PREFIX for every app i install...) 2. env WINEPREFIX=~/yourfoolwinepath/ winetricks -q vcrun2010 mfc42 gdiplus 3. env WINEPREFIX=~/yourfoolwinepath/ wine yourX2setup.exe The installation should be doing fine if you did step 2 and don't select the special vst from the hitboxlist. If you choose the special vst then you will recieve some regsvr errors but the installation will continue ***Startup*** First of all X2 will check you plugins and figure out what kind of dll you have installed. For me this runs fine. But Cakewalk crashes for me with an information that the Software is not proper installed and should be installed from the original DVD again (error code = 1). Dont panic this is some kind of normal because Cakewalk had some trouble with their installer. This happens also to windows user. Simply go to /yourfoolwinepath/drive_c/Public/Application Data/Identities and change the permissions from the temp Cakewalk installation folder to your user permissions. After that Cakewalk will start up fine. ***Audio Setup*** After that X2 will test your audiohardware which will fail. This isnt a fault from wine neither from X2, like some users may think about. For get X2 fully support your audiocard you need to set it up correctly. I use two different RME Audio Interfaces and NEED the wineasio driver to connect to jack: 1a. env WINEPREFIX=~/yourfoolwinepath/ wine regsvr32 wineasio 1b. fire up jack 1c. fire up Cakewalk X2 2. Click Edit > Preferences 3. Under the Audio section on the left, click on Playback and Recording 4. From the 'Driver Mode' dropdown select ASIO and then click Apply 5. Under the Audio section on the left, click on Devices 6. Make sure your RME card is selected under both inputs and outputs. If it appears grayed out, deselect all drivers, in both inputs and outputs, then select your RME card. Click Apply. 7. Under the Audio section on the left, click on Driver Settings 8. Make sure one of your RME drivers is selected as 'Playback Timing Master'. It is best to select the output that you have speakers or headphones connected to. 9. Click Apply and then OK 10. Finally, all audio playback will occur from the RME device. 11. Make sure you have your speakers or headphones connected to its outputs Note: RME may also provide WDM/KS drivers. If you experience problems in the ASIO Driver Mode, you may want to consider using WDM as an alternative. If you are not using RME just visit this site: choose your soundcard and follow the instruction step by step. There will be some test for setup your audio by X2. This should work fine and normally you should have full audio support. Save that and restart X2. Maybe you need to range you masteroutput to you new card configuration. ***Additional notes*** Generally this is an awesome app. In my opinion only steinbergs cubase reach its contents. But steinbergs software comes from another planet :-) Have fun making music ^^
