https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckingYourUbuntuVersion is how to tell
what version you are running.

when what installed, what said what? the application stated it was for
12.04? that is likely, and can cause the issue where the version is created
for 12.04, and also is a beta version, and may only have support for 12.04.
you will need to ask them for support for the operating system you are
using, or use the supported operating system that they list. ubuntustudio
is not doing anything to prevent the application from running on it. the
creators will make a version that can run on 13.10, *if* thats what you are

it seems you simply cant get it to run in 13.10, since you stated it *did*
work in 12.04, correct? ubuntustudio *is* ubuntu.

they will ideally be the party responsible for support, since its not an
app that is in the ubuntu repositories, and its beta.

thank you!.. i would just refer to the documentation they provide and see
what you need to do to run and install the beta version on 13.10, assuming
they have made it possible to run the application on 13.10, and you are
indeed using 13.10.. cheers!
