What works

Recording and Playback of audio inputs, once the best audio driver was selected in winecfg [ the ALSA driver worked best on my Lenovo Thinkpad T61]. I'm able to create new projects and save them, and also load existing projects (I use the cakewalk bundle file format) from projects recorded on windows OS.

What does not

The staff view fonts. Not sure where to get the correct font for that. Also, the program hangs sometimes when initializing and loading the previous project file. I use the cakewalk bundle formatted project files. If I just dismiss the initial loading dialog, and then select the open project button on the toolbar, it seems ok. Also, the initial tips dialog doesn't display properly when it is first popped up. If I select the next tip, it seems ok.


What was not tested

staff view, mixing down audio to audio file, encoding into MP3 format, plugins, sound effects processing, and all of the audio editing functions. I'll be checking these in the next couple of days.

Additional Comments

to get it to install and run, I had to override the MFC dll. Also, it didn't put the start icon in the start menu under Wine or on the desktop.
