I need help installing wineasio on Ubuntu 19.10

Postby Arkforest » Wed Jan 22, 2020 1:54 pm

Hello,

I am trying to install WineASIO on Kubuntu 19.10 but I am having trouble with installing it, whether that be trying to compile the wineasio tarball modified with a bit of the Steinberg ASIO SDK or installing it from the KXStudio repos.

I am using these two links mainly to help me with the process:
https://wiki.cockos.com/wiki/index.php/ ... g_WineASIO
https://lkubuntu.wordpress.com/2014/01/ ... -wineasio/

So far I've encountered issues with dependencies when installing through the KXStudio repos and issues with 'make' command fatal errors when compiling the modified wineasio tarball. I would like to know how to overcome these frustrating obstacles, or possibly a better method of installing WineASIO.

Any help is appreciated,

Arkforest

What is WineASIO ? I've been using Windows plugins now for a year and never saw it. I'm only using wine staging and linvst and it works fine. What is the need for WineASIO ?

I want to be able to record my voice with a microphone on FL Studio without xruns.

I've never heard of linvst and now that I'm aware of it, I'll look into that.

UPDATE: I have also since reinstalled with Kubuntu 18.04.3 LTS and the dependency issues have since gone, as the KXstudio repositories are mostly updated for LTS. My new issue is I have trouble registering the wineasio DLL, as if I type "regsvr32 wineasio" or the same thing with "wine64", if fails to load the wineasio DLL. I haven't found a solution to this problem online, so I think there is something I might have missed, and I would like for it to be pointed out.

I still wonder what this wine asio is all about.

Never mind, I found out that I needed winehq-staging, not winehq-stable.

That's what I use for a bit more than a year. wine staging and linvst. Windows plugins from Voxengo, Melda Production, Rob Papen, Tone2, Sonic Charge, KV331, and a few more. Never heard of wineASIO and they all work rather well.

Hi, wineasio can help when using standalone apps that don't get wrapped
by the (great) linvst, and there will be a few plugins, and some new ones,
which don't yet work with linvst, that may be desirable to use with
typically, wine and windows reaper version, with wineasio as the asio driver.

There are a few standalones that have tools not part of their plugin version,
Amplitube .exe has looper and recording functions, and I'm pretty sure Kontakt
cpu usage varies between plugin and standalone.

It would be nice for wineHQ, Ubuntu Studio, AVLinux and others, to have
distro-specific guides for successful registration of wineasio.dll,
even if it benefits a small number of users, it might help attract
win 10 refugees, and those not cash-flush (or crazy enough) to buy macs.

That said, the plugin-wrapping success rate of linvst is delightfully amazing, these days 8)
Cheers
