Ableton Live (Trial) 64 Bit
Tested Suite version 10.1.18.
All menus and windows with a high degree of responsiveness
Built-in MIDI instruments
Windows VST (!) with jBridge
WAV importing and manipulation
Saving and loading audio clips and full projects to/from disk
Headphone playback and mic recording through PulseAudio; pactl aka PulseAudio Volume Control can be used to change the input/output devices
Was able to use 256-sample input and output buffers to minimize latency to 5.80ms according to the Preferences dialog
What does not
MP3s don't import properly; Ableton says "the file may be corrupt or not licensed".
Exporting as MP3 also appears to not function properly.
This was tested even with quicktime72 installed under winetricks.
Ableton Link: The Link button doesn't appear at the top-left corner. (This might have been removed in a recent version of Ableton; not sure.)
Used winetricks to install: vcrun2015 quicktime72 dxvk quartz
Used winecfg to set Windows version to >=7 to get the installer to run
Also have winbind installed via apt, although not sure if that's necessary
Some dialog boxes, e.g. Preferences, open behind the current window, so you need to resize the main window to see them
What was not tested
Anything related to physical MIDI hardware
0354:fixme:dwmapi:DwmFlush () stub
spam in my Wine output, although the program seems to run fine graphically.
The installer will crash if there is not enough disk space available.
