[Wine] Cannot configure my Akai MPK/Alesis VI49 anymore

Post by jaylcee »


I have a two midi controllers -Akai MPK mkII and Alesis VI49- that I use daily running Reaper in Ubuntu Studio. When I bought them, I configured their mapping using their respective native Windows editor with WINE without any problem.

A few days ago, I wanted to remap a few keys and a problem appeared: these two editors don't list any midi device anymore, the list is just empty. Back then, it used to show my two controllers plus a bunch of stuffs. It has been a while since I needed to remap keys and many things have changed in my system since the last time (upgrade from Ubuntu Studio 18.04 to 20.04, updating WINE, uninstalling many many programs).

I have even runned the Windows version of Reaper with Wine and it recognizes my controllers normally but the Akai and the Alesis editors see nothing.

Any idea please?

Thank you.
