How do you use plugins with Ardour
I recently got Ubuntu Studio, which comes with ardour and various plugins, but I'm not sure how to use any of them.
One of the plugins I have is blop, a synthetic oscillator. I can't seem to use it in Ardour at all. Should I use it in JACK and for that matter how do I sequence MIDI steps to create a melody or bass line? Very confused, please help.
