Lowest Audio latency without wineasio in Wine 4.13

Post by Sambaji » Tue Aug 06, 2019 12:40 am

Through my testing, it appears that Wineasio driver supported by KXstudio only works with the wine-rt 3. Ableton 10 seems to work best using Wine 4.x. I am currently running Ableton in the WineHQ-devel 4.13 on Linuxmint 19.2 Cinnamon. It runs well but the audio latency is reporting high. Is there a way of optimising the latency without using wineasio? Also, does Alsa have less latency then Pulseaudio in Wine? Thanks.

The Wine version coming with KxStudio is a patched rt (real time) version of Wine. Quite old (wine rt 3.0.2 ) regarding the fast development of Wine. My opinion, you should ask to the KxStudio team to upload their Wine version. Or try to install a RT Wine version. You're right : some apps should work better with recent Wine, but RT is essential for audio work.

Thanks for your reply. The Kxstudio team is taking a break from further development until later this year. Once they are back on, I'll contact them.

Note to self, this script, ran in the terminal, offers some useful tips for optimizing audio:

git clone git://github.com/raboof/realtimeconfigquickscan.git
cd realtimeconfigquickscan
perl ./realTimeConfigQuickScan.pl
