VST issues in FL Studio 64bit

I've installed the latest release of FL Studio in POL, using Wine Staging 6.17 on a 64bit drive. The program itself works fine, I am getting audio, smooth workflow and stuff, but only as long as I am not using 32bit VSTs.
The moment I try to use a 32bit VST, the program freezes. Audio will still play but the program becomes non-responsive as if the plugin is crashing some kind of video routine. Interestingly 32bit VSTs will still play audio but only as long as I am not opening the plugin. Having it closed it will function as normal, which leads me to believe it's a rendering issue.

I have a Ryzen 7 1800X CPU with 40GB DDR4 RAM, running Linux Mint Cinnamon 20.3.

On 32bit FL Studio I have none of these issues with 32bit plugins, however that version is deprecated by now and any projects I save in FL 64bit are not compatible with it.

So far I've tried different Wine versions without success, and I could use some help.
