number". Did this under Windows, did not get that far using Wine. Might need 
a second copy just for the Linux runs.

directory. Might have problems doing this in Wine. Some VST demos bring up an 
error box saying please register, limited trial, etc. Such things may be 
disruptive in Wine. (Other VST hosts let you manually find them when you want 
them, avoiding this problem in most cases)

The main problem is that any UI pop-up, i.e. to choose files, etc., does not 
come up visibly. This is the apparent hangup. Alt-F4 dismisses the invisible 
dialog box.

It audio output device is listed as "direct sound" (under Windows, the card's 
ASIO drivers would be listed).

But .. one would not get anywhere near this far with Sonar.
