Up until now,
I've never really done much with Midi in emulated Windows
apps because I haven't needed them, but recently I acquired a copy of
SoundDiver 3 for Windows from just before Apple killed them (jerks!).
It's widely regarded as the only Midi patch librarian/editor for
hardware synths that ever actually worked.
You've not said what hardware synths you want to control so it will be
a bit hard for anybody to aim any suggestions your way!
Well, it's a communications problem that seems to crash Wine apps as
soon as they try to do any Midi i/o at all, so it probably doesn't
matter. The main one I've been using librarian programs like JSynthLib
and SoundDiver with is an Ensoniq ESQ-1, but I also have an
editor/librarian for a Yamaha SY99 that crashes it. The common
denominator seems to be trying to transmit any kind of bytes though.
