Hi Erich and all others reading,

Glad to read about this update. I still feel that it's a very important step in the development and would like to share my sincere appreciation for everybody's work.

Since KXStudio is not updated currently, that leaves people who depend on old guides in a vulnerable situation. With the addition of these tools, I think it's become much easier to move to a standard Ubuntu derivative for audio work now. Nothing against Falk's work though, in fact, I think he should actually join up too.

I've used the KXS-repository myself for a long time in US, mostly for wineasio, since I work with Reaper in Wine and have a ton of Windows VSTs in there. I know that there are other solutions, but running them in Wine is the safest bet for me, currently.

Unfortunately, wine-rt was outdated even back when I began using US, so I started looking for a solution and sure enough, following this guide and just building it myself was easy enough: https://github.com/jhernberg/wineasio/issues/6

I even moved my built version to another installation and it still worked, so I don't know why there are no PPAs or binary downloads currently, unless I'm missing some kind of hurdle. It can't be that there's no demand, since threads about wineasio on Ubuntu are always popping up here and there.

I wonder if it's feasible to offer a version of wineasio in the US package somehow. If not, I'd like to add that guide to the official documentation to give an answer to people looking to move their Windows workflow to Ubuntu Studio.

Also, on a different topic, I've set up a systemwide EQ to level out my speakers following this guide: https://github.com/M4he/Linux/tree/master/JACK/PA_through_JACK

Basically, the idea is to autoload a Calf EQ plugin and use an active QjackCtl patchbay-automation to route all program and module outputs through the Calf EQ and then to the system outs, as soon as a program is opened. I wonder how that setup could look like using Ubuntustudio-Controls now, which is missing the automatic patchbay and bash-script execution as far as I'm aware. (However the scripts could probably be setup on system start with sleep-timers, if necessary.)

That became a bit longer than I wanted it to be, sorry. Thanks again everyone!

Kind regards,
