Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installs just fine, however if you're using DXVK it can result in graphical distortion in the installer (all images are rendered as black squares).
  • Installs organ packages
  • Playing from MIDI console works (MIDI input and audio output works well)
  • No actual noticeable latency compared to the same app running in native windows environment, but:

What does not

  • The CPU indicator on the status bar stays high most of the time, but it's probably just a glitch since htop shows normal CPU usage, and there's no noticeable sound distortion or scratching.
  • The USB license dongle doesn't work, probably due to the lack of linux drivers, so you are limited to the trial modes or the free edition.


What was not tested

  • MIDI or Audio recording

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

Tested with Hauptwerk running in the Advanced edition trial mode (with periodic chime), using both the included St Anne the full Caen Sourrond (from Sonus Paradisi) sample sets.

The test machine is a 3rd gen i7 CPU with 32GB of DDR3 RAM, using pipewire, pipewire-pulse and wireplumber together as sound system, with wine set to use Winepulse.drv.
