Ardour 2.5 VST- how do I actually use VST plugins in ardour?
I followed this guide: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=801718 , and I finally have my copy built and installed. Now what? I opened a project I'm working on, and I have some VST plugins placed in my usr/lib/vst directory, but when I search for the plugins to add them to the project, I cant find them. What am I doing wrong? Do I have to run a bridge of some kind in WINE and route it into ardour via jack? I know thats what some people do, but I want to get them running without that method. Any thoughts? I already searched this forum and the internet and could find no answers. Also, I don't have any errors coming up in the log, so I have know idea whats going on.
