Hi, no problem with wine-staging 2.20 in Mint 18 with nvidia graphics
mAudio PCI or Fender usb audio. Using linux Reaper 565pre8,
and the windows version is also OK. Checked a good range of commercial
and freewares.
Cheers

d2d1 is not disabled, and these are the over-rides
I have installed:

ucrtbase
msvcr120
msvcp140
msvcp120
msvbvm60
mscoree
gdiplus
d3dx9_41
d3dx9_35
d2d1
concrt140
api-ms-win-crt-time-|1-1-0
api-ms-win-crt-runtime-|1-1-0

All the controls seem to work, and the many drawing functions
also are OK, likely not as fluid as a real windows setup.

The 64 bit version just draws a blank window,
and I now defer as Sergeant Schulz.
But Serum 32bit sounds great!
Serum 64bit demo in linux reaper opened with just an empty black screen, but the audio seemed alive, so on a hunch, I invoked reapers
vst sliders gui, and closed it again, and voilaaaAAAHHH,
the real Serum gui appeared. You may have to dock and undock it,
for the gui to be properly placed, and it works good enough for
loading and editing sounds. Some operations reinvoke the demo screen,
but it doesn't seem to effect what was being edited/played.
Demo limit is 20 minute sessions, no saving. The nice sound
and gui reminds me of KV331 Synthmaster One, which is on sale at some places,
and also works well in linux Reaper.

Cheers

Ok, so I tried again and it worked. Maybe next time I should close Wine before upgrading :P

Thanks!

EDIT = Nope, it's still not working for me. Addictive Keys does not load (not even its XLN Online Installer, or rather freezes after opening) and some other VSTs GUIs are very sluggish, breaking wine (and all open VSTs) after closing and trying to open again. Also tried wine 2.21; same result. Maybe I should try a fresh WINEPREFIX.

I wonder if OSXMIDI knows something about this. The strange thing is that wine-staging 2.19 works flawlessly, UIs open fast, plugins load fast, everything just works...

As a strategy, try putting any synthedit, synthmaker,
and sluggish plugins in one folder, outside the vst paths
that linvst uses, and see if they work
well in the windows Reaper in wine. Then test them
with airwave-manager and linux Reaper.
Those still not working can be moved
yet again, and attempt conversion with linvst

Then remove all the linvst created .so files, in the
traditional Program Files subfolders,
and reconvert them with the latest linvst.
I've had best luck with complex installers
by sticking to their default path choices,
as daft as they may occasionally be.

Some plugins may even do better when not in
the Program Files paths, due to the windoze administrator follies,
.wine/drive_c/users/Public/Documents being recommended by
some devs. I have U-he and Native Instruments there.

Maybe your kernel conflicts with something in the
newer wines? If there is a prominent error message, maybe the
gamer communities are sharing your issues, giving the
error search engine status.
Cheers
