What works

Everything, except sound.

What does not

Nothing does not work, but the product relies on the underlying OS having a working MIDI synth, which is not installed by default on most Linux distros.... this is not a failing in the product, or in Wine.


Sound output requires a native MIDI synth which is not a standard feature of most Linux distros, I solved this by installing "fluidsynth", and running in a console, specifying "pulseaudio" as the output, and the provided soundfont from /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2

Something like:- fluidsynth  -a pulseaudio /usr/share/sounds/sf2/FluidR3_GM.sf2

(Some users have reported successusing "Timidity" also).

What was not tested

Hardware MIDI in/out (I have no reason to suspect that this would not work, since Wine appears to be able to map MIDI devices into the Windows environment).

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

I really consider this to be closer to "Platinum", it runs without any extra components, VC runtimes etc... and the fact that you have to have a MIDI compatible synth seems obvious really, it's just co-incidental that Windows includes a basic MIDI synth by default.

Note that 2.75 allows you to use the file converter found here:-

to export the files to other products such as Musescore etc. (many of which can run natively)
