My favorite DAW is REAPER… Hands down. inexpensive and fully functional. You can run it as a portable app as well… It is considered “Platinum” via WINE Apps (Which means it work great in linux as a Windows App).

The Resource that was most helpful: https://alexanderstechcorner.wordpress.com/2014/03/24/install-reaper-on-ubuntu-linux/

I am using and tried this tutorial with a Line 6 Toneport GX and a Behringer UCG102 to manage the guitar signal.

With a couple of modifications, the tutorial works great. Here it is with my modifications:


Open TERMINAL:

Add the KXStudio repositories (press ‘Enter’ once asked)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kxstudio-debian/kxstudio

 Update the Apt software sources

sudo apt-get update

 Install the KXStudio repositories

sudo apt-get install kxstudio-repos

 Update Apt software sources once again

sudo apt-get update

Open the Software Center and install the following:

sudo apt-get install cadence wine wineasio indicator-cpufreq gmone-system-tools

Once that is setup you need to download Reaper (32 bit to be safe, but you can use the 64 bit on) here: http://reaper.fm

Now it is time to register the WineASIO Driver:
Register WineASIO:

From a Terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) window enter the following:

regsvr32 wineasio.dll
wine64 regsvr32 wineasio.dll

Close the terminal window, restart your PC and log in.

Open Cadence to start the JACK server.

Cadence1

  • Under “System > System Status > CPU Scaling Governor >” select “ondemand” and change it to “performance” This will disable CPU Scaling and thus keep it alert at all times (very important to avoid xruns).
    Under “System Checks” You should have a check mark beside “User in audio group” if not open Gnome System Settings to add yourself to the audio group. The same can be done by opening a terminal window and entering the following command: usermod -a -G audio alex
  • “alex” being replaced by your user name.

Make sure your device (Toneport or UCG102) is on and run Guitarix & QjackCtl. Under QjackClt, make sure it look like this:

Connections - JACK Audio Connection Kit_003

Go into settings and make sure your device is detected… if you are using a Line6 Toneport, you need to kill the Monitor:

aslamixer

F6, select Toneport and drop the monitor to the floor

collin@OMEGA-PC: ~_004

Open Cadence to start the JACK server.

Cadence1

  • Under “System > System Status > CPU Scaling Governor >” select “ondemand” and change it to “performance” This will disable CPU Scaling and thus keep it alert at all times (very important to avoid xruns).
    Under “System Checks” You should have a check mark beside “User in audio group” if not open Gnome System Settings to add yourself to the audio group. The same can be done by opening a terminal window and entering the following command: usermod -a -G audio alex
  • “alex” being replaced by your user name.

Now under JACK statues press Configure which will bring up the following window.

CadenceJ Jack Configure

  • Select your Input and Output device, Sample Rate and Buffer Size here. Hit OK.
  • Now start the JACK server.

Open up Reaper

Reaper Audio Prefs

  • Go to Options > Preferences > Audio > Device and under Audio select ASIO.
  • Under ASIO Driver select WineASIO Driver, your audio inputs and outputs should appear in the window similar to to the one in the screenshot above, if not you may have to revisit the “Register WineASIO” topic above.
  • Once you’re done hit OK.
  • Now you should be ready to go. Please note that the performance of Reaper under Wine will not be as snappy to that of Reaper running natively on a Mac. If you have a fairly decent PC it shouldn’t appear at all that sluggish.
