Wall of Sound via WINE

Has anyone managed to get this working on Linux through WINE? The installation works, the issue is when it tries to verify the license. The process of logging in works, and it downloads the license fine, but when it tries to verify it, it immediately crashes. The program seems otherwise fine, which is rather frustrating.

Also, is WoS III still available anywhere on the internet? I wonder if it's possible to get that working.
 

C.O.D.

I would also be interested in this. I had mine working until the latest wine-staging 4.19 came out which broke it. Now WoS wants to be registered again which doesn't work anymore.
This is really sad and I can imagine that there's a considerable amount of users that switched to Linux and who want to continue using the plugin...
 
It would be great to see this working in WINE, and even better to see native Linux support. In fact, it seems like it will be possible to have a higher end recording setup using Linux in the near-ish future since 5.5 is getting Thunderbolt updates and REAPER, for example, already has experimental builds. I bet the people writing the drivers for audio interfaces would probably prefer working with a Linux kernel, too.

i'm afraid there is no study to support that, we get probably a request once or twice a year for Linux and the whole MI business doesn't care much for that OS.

Until there is a major change in favor of Linux-based audio workstation, we will focus on the TONS of macOS and Windows versions we already need to support. ;)

I count 3 requests in this thread alone, so your market appears to have grown a minimum of 50% :)

If you've already done the work for mac, you probably have most of the work done for Linux already. Have you considered native support for something like Debian or CentOS?
