I know this is a bug that probably will be fixed in a later version of wine 1.3X. But I was hoping if there is a way to tweak of edit the current version if I have this problem again (I still have it).

At first everything was working perfectly, but then after 10 minutes I got a bad sound. I still get the bad sound and it's not localized to a specific application it's also in the wine test sound function.

wine version: wine-1.3.31

I have the winealsa driver. It's a new interface and all the old fixes doesn't work.

in the default selesctions you can choose default, System deafult or HDMI (external).

Wine 1.3 is the development version. Does this happen in Wine 1.2 too? – Anonymous Oct 25 '11 at 17:26
wine 1.2 doesn't even work for me... – Alvar Oct 25 '11 at 17:29
If possible, select the pulse driver. If not, call the wine application with pasuspender ahead. – aquaherd Oct 25 '11 at 20:33
tell me how to? I don't know this new interface.... – Alvar Oct 26 '11 at 4:49
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, and as such is off-topic, thanks! Instructions here. – Ringtail Mar 1 '12 at 16:07

Here's the details on how to use aquaherd's suggestion of pasuspender.

pasuspender will bypass the pulseaudio system for a given program. To try this, open a terminal window (Press Alt+F2 and type gnome-terminal). Then try the following command substituting whatever windows program you want to run for the final argument:

cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/SomethingEleseHere
wineserver -k #stop wine if it is running
pasuspender -- wine SomeApplicationHere.exe

You can also try pasuspender -- winecfg to run the configuration and test speakers with pulseaudio suspended
