Hi,

After fixing the jack 32bit/64bit issue, now finally I can run kontakt5

1. As standalone exe, using WINE / WineASIO
2. As a VST instrument, using WINE / WineASIO / SAVIHost
3. As a VST instrument, using Festige / FST.

All approaches can show the GUI, and play some sound.

Great!

I can see the following differences:

- While approach 1 and 2 give me 2 output channels, approach 3 gives me
8, 16 or 64 output channels (depending on which DLL I pick). I only need
2 for stereo..

- I would think that approach 1 and 2 involve emulating more stuff than
strictly necessary, so I would like to stick to approach 3, if possible.

- Only approach 3 gives me direct JACK midi input. (But I guess I can
solve this with a2jmidid for the other two approaches, too.)

* * *

Anyway, what comes next now is to

1. Set this up in a networked way: host1 has the physical midi input and
audio HW, host2 is running the VST. (I have already done this with
jack2, but now I have to re-do this for jack1.)
2. Tune the system to decent latency/performance; currently I get a lot
of xruns...

* * *

Is there an up-to-date guide somewhere explaining
- how should I choose my kernel version ,
- what to compile into my kernel,
- how to configure my kernel run-time,
- how to patch / configure wine,
- how to configure jack
- etc

.... to get the best possible audio performance?

(I know this gets talked about all the time, but everything is changing
so fast, and half of the info I find the net is already obsolete;
I am not asking you to repeat what is is already stated, but to point me
to the relevant and current docs.)

Thank you for your help:

Kristof
