Hi Atte,

I am using dssi-vst + wine to run my B4II Hammond organ simulation. I have 
found this to be the most foolproof and neat solution. The graphical user 
interface of the B4II is supported and displays without errors.

Initially I used to have some issues running the vst related to the wine 
version I was using and there used to be a recommendation of a particular 
version of wine that appeared to work with dssi-vst. This is outdated as 
latest wine versions have never caused any trouble any more.

I do not compile neither wine nor dssi-vst as I have never had much success 
doing that, there have always been some issues like which path to the vst to 
include and/or how to include jack interface etc. I simply download *.deb 
packages which install and run just fine on my sidux linux system.

The B4II runs really nicely with low latency and a great sound quality. I 
bought a terratec Aureon USB interface that has optical S/PDIF connectors 
which connect to my audio amplifier that has a TOS-link itself. So no humming 
issues here - and it all connects to /runs on my notebook.
