Hi guys. First time poster here.
Just took the time to register this info: I have managed to succeed in running MAX 5 Runtime inside Linux, good, stable and clean sound, through wine-rt and wineasio. Just submitted the info to Wine APP DB Database, with procedures and how-to to install wine-rt and register wineasio inside a Linux Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, so as everyone can benefit:
On the hardware side, I am successfully using a Livid OHMRGB Slim, USB plugged into ALSA MIDI / KXStudio patchbay and being fed / recognized by MLRV2 (version 2.5-5 from Parallelogram).
Here's a screenshot of MLRV2 running with MAX 5 Runtine inside wine-rt from kxstudio repos:
Hope this helps someone trying to run Monome patches on Linux, since it took me some days to do it.
