NI Massive and FM8 only show a black window. They both work in dssi-vst
(which uses a separate process to do the VST stuff), but I once used
some code from dssi-vst to make my own VST host (mainly as an excercise)
and just by adding jack I encountered the same problem. I wasn't able to
solve it, but I suspect it's something with wine. Removing jack from fst
didn't make the GUIs appear. LMMS also displays only black windows with
these two.

KorePlayer (free as in beer) shows a GUI, but I cannot click on
anything. It just won't react. This also works in dssi-vst, but not in

NI plugins that do work here are: Guitar Rig 3, Kontakt 2/3, Pro-53,
Absynth4. Most of the IK stuff I have also works, including AmpegSVX
Uno, which doesn't work in any other host I tried on linux.

IK SampleMoog doesn't even open a window in fst. I can't check if it
produces sound, because you need the GUI to load a preset first. Works
in dssi-vst.

I'm running UbuntuStudio 8.04 (RT), wine 1.1.12, jack 0.115.6.
