WINE + MP3 Gain

I haven’t found a lot of use for Wine, Ubuntu’s Windows Emulator, in the past because I have been able to find open source alternatives for most of the programs I use. MP3 Gain is a program I haven’t found an alternative to use yet so I decided to try it out via Wine.

Getting the program up and running with Wine is easy. Once Wine is installed on your system you install programs via an .exe file as you would in Windows. My only problem is that MP3 Gain runs really slowly on my system. I’ve had a lot of issues with freezing and lag. I don’t know if this is just my system or a general problem, Wine gives the emulation high marks, so I am curious if others have had the same problem.
