Native Instruments Kontakt 5 (5.6.1), a popular VST to add a lot of new instruments in your DAW software.
Installing software, launching software, adding instruments, using it in a DAW as a VST plugin (tried Ableton Live, on Wine too) and play instruments in DAWs
What does not
Kontakt is stuck at launch on the scanning step, sometimes crashes, if msvcp140 override is not set to "native" in winecfg.
What was not tested
Since I am not a professional music maker, I didn't try all the functions of this software. However every functions I tried, from adding a new instrument to tune it, work perfectly.
I only tried with wine-staging, but I guess the "classic" wine should work too.
When I launch the installer and click "Next", sometimes my gnome-shell reloads itself but doesn't close the installer, so it's fine and I can continue installing this. But sometimes gnome-shell crashes, so save all your work before installing Kontakt 5 if you use Gnome 3 as a desktop environment.
