If wine's not working and you need say 8 tracks then use proxmox to host 8 Windows VMs each running one Sound Recorder. Route audio i/o with something like netjack. It will never fail. If it does only the track that fails is lost. Might need about 250GB for all the VMs since Windows isn't particular skinny out of the box.
This is clever, technically advanced, interesting and amazingly stupid idea! 6/5
