That's one example, only a small portion of what we do and those devices were made mainly for mobile devices. Adding support for Windows was due to user requests, all our software and full audio interfaces like AXE I/O were Windows compatible from the start.

It is also not IK but Microsoft that would make it necessary for full drivers as our iRig devices have always been class compliant and macOS/OS X has always had great plug and play support for class compliant audio interfaces so it is Apple that is ahead of Microsoft in that way, not IK having anything "lagging behind".

I've also decided to switch to linux after a great many years, so, yeah, I am a bit disappointed but so be it. Carry on the good work.

Sorry for reviving this thread again.

I used amplitube 4 on linux with wine with no problem at all since a few years now. Amplitube 5 work as well but the new licensing tool just dont work on wine... i have to use the old one. It would be nice to have support for Wine at least. Just making sure that the windows version is compatible with wine libraries(If it work on XP it work on wine) and please do not use power shell its available on linux but not on wine !!!!.

Linux for desktop adoption is on the raise. Thanks to steam, windows 11 and the pandemic we reached 1% of the desktop market lately wich is a lot and its growing faster and faster. Linux user pay for their software... it would be nice to consider us now that there is a market. By the way this is a thread about linux not windows :D ....

Keep making your unbeatable pluggins. I will keep buying more if it work on wine.

PS Once you start using Jack Audio you cant go back. its a very powerful audio connection tool .some studios are switching to linux just for that.

Thank you !
