Hi Dave,
   NI's Battery runs fine for me under Wine from CVS. I *think* Geoff
Beasley uses Kontakt under some version of Wine, but it may be the
older 20040505//fst sort of solution. I'm not sure. This last 2 weeks
we've been working on trying to get Reaktor to run under CVS Wine. For
most of us it won't install or won't even start.

   As for audio the Jack driver in Wine CVS isn't working at all so I
have to use non-realtime drivers (OSS, Alsa) and suffer with higher

   Sometimes I also run older versions of Acid Pro under Wine. Newer
versions (4.0, 5.0) don't run the last time I checked. (I should check

   Truth in advertizing - mostly I'm sticking with Windows for Windows
audio programs. I do run iTunes and Quicken under Wine from CXO
