Your post desperately needs more information.
For example, the title and the actual post appear to be two completely different questions.

You say Sonic Pi has a new version that has wound work. Why not use that? You say "the screen is not right", but how can we help you with that little information?
What, is the new version stuck off-screen? Please revise your post so we can help.

Sonic-Pi installs OK on the new Pi OS
but there is no sound output .
The people at Sonic-Pi have came up
with a .deb file version that puts out
sound, but has problems with the GUI.
I would like to use the version available
via apt-install , but know how to connect
it's sound to the analog out on a RPi 3 B +

EXACTLY WHAT "problems"? Is it a known issue with the .deb file? Or just a problem you're having?

Are you trying to output to analog or hdmi? Have you done an apt full-upgrade recently?
Have you selected a default ALSA default audio output device via the panel's sound icon?

It is possible it is because I'm using 3B+ rather than 4B used by the .deb maker ....
See here :

https://in-thread.sonic-pi.net/t/no-sou ... 3-2-2/4024

That is why I want not to use the .deb file if possible .
The other option is simply to go back to Buster , which works fine .
