have excellent internal preset handling. The free synthesizers TyrellN6, Bazille, Triple Cheese
work fine, as does ZebraCM, found on every Computer Music Magazine dvd, and the new
commercial synth Diva. The flagship Zebra 2, and its free colt, Zebralette, work, but the latest
release has changed the default paths, so I need to sort those out.
For these, I copied over the folders from a linux wineasio setup, and linked the .dll's
to /usr/lib/dssi/dssi-vst, and to start them,
Got Zebra2, Zebralette, MFM2, and ACE working, I had to ignore the installers suggestions,
and manually enter a path in the installer fields, and also add a font, l_10646.ttf to the

and /root/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/u-he for the data folders.
There are excellent youtube tutorials on some of these. The score of the recent Batman movie
was largely done in Zebra2. It's full-function demo must be restarted every 13 minutes (ballpark)
or it plays notes other than your key-presses. The ACE demo has some quiet vinyl crackle.
Bazille and ACE are old-skool patch cable synths, some of you may have grown up using
something like that, and have great fun using them.
Must be 1500 presets amongst the herd, counting the free ones at the u-he web site
