I am trying to change the default Audio sound system to ALSA so it fixes some sound issues. How can this be done?
Am using 1.3.x branch from PPA which is much better than the 1.1.x and 1.2.x in every way.

In your terminal type
This does the same effect as in @fossfreedom-s solution. Note: if you want to disable all audio in wine, use
All you need to do is enable Alsa and disable all others in
winecfg. You can also try
padsp wine insert-application-name-here, this will redirect it to OSS, but fixes many problems with sound.
If you do not see the option there, you may be able to add it to your .reg file (You may need to look at the WINE Wiki to find out how to do this).
I agree with FossFreedom, however I would add that you may also need to un-install Wine and delete the
.wine folder, and then re-install a fresh copy of Wine, should your Windows application are not working properly.
This time configuring Winetricks as described BEFORE installing any Windows application.
Worked for me.
