What works

Nearly everything that comes with the default installation works smoothly, including the standard DSP array, converter, file operations, tagging, etc. Several third party DSP, decoder, UI, and functionality plugins work flawlessly too.

What does not

  1. [Crash] Application does not start using Windows 10 prefix version; requires running on Windows 8.1 prefix version or lower.
  2. [Graphical] Visualizations are not functioning properly.
    1. None of the default or third party visualizations work in full-screen mode.
    2. Direct2D Oscilloscope component is completely unusable, and causes the application to slow down, stutter, or even hang depending on system resources.
  3. [UI] Locking the toolbar does not actually lock the toolbar, and still allows toolbar items to be dragged by clicking on the left-most text of each toolbar component.
  4. [Input] CTRL key "sticks" and remains in the keybuffer when running through xwayland. For example, hitting CTRL+F requires pressing CTRL again to "unstick" it (i.e. remove it from the buffer).
  5. [Output] WASAPI exclusive output does not work regardless of Wine's output driver or by modifying buffer length or event/push mode within the application.


Running under Xorg natively resolves the CTRL key sticking issue.
