  13. KXStudio includes a program called Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator) which allows most <acronym title="Microsoft">MS</acronym> Windows software to run under GNU/Linux. It is <acronym title="Free/Libre and Open Source Software">FLOSS</acronym> and does not require a copy of Windows to run it. While a number of Windows applications will not run at all under Wine, there is the odd app or game that runs better under Wine than real Windows! In most cases though, <acronym title="Microsoft">MS</acronym> Windows apps run slower under Wine than under a genuine Windows install. Overall, it is recommended to run native GNU/Linux software instead of using Windows software under Wine, but the option of Wine allows flexibility if no suitable, Linux-native alternative software is available at the moment.

  19. Audio Stream Input/Output (ASIO) is the most common low-latency sound card driver protocol for <acronym title="Microsoft">MS</acronym> Windows, hence most professional Windows audio software is designed to work with ASIO. KXStudio includes WineASIO which provides an ASIO to JACK driver for Wine. This allows ASIO-compatible Windows software running under Wine to access your JACK device/server as if it was an ASIO device.

  48. If you ran KXStudio Welcome Setup before then you should already have the wineasio.dll library registered, otherwise or if you messed up your Wine configuration you should run:
  49. </p>
  50. <pre class="code">regsvr32 wineasio.dll</pre>
  51. <p>
  52. If you&#039;re running a 64-bit <acronym title="Operating System">OS</acronym> and you want to run 64-bit Windows software under wine, run the following too:
  53. </p>
  54. <pre class="code">wine64 regsvr32 wineasio.dll</pre>
  55. <p>
  56. You should only need to issue these commands once, if at all, and there is no harm in re-running them.

  62. KXStudio includes the <acronym title="Microsoft">MS</acronym> Windows version of REAPER (Rapid Environment for Audio Production, Engineering, and Recording). REAPER is proprietary software which runs as a fully-functional demo for trial. It is one of the most powerful and popular DAWs available for Windows and Mac OSX, and a native Linux version is in development. REAPER has proven popular under GNU/Linux due to its advanced audio production features, its not-<acronym title="Free/Libre and Open Source Software">FLOSS</acronym>-but-nonetheless-user-friendly licensing and its official support for running the Windows version under Wine.
