DSSI plugins in Ardour
I'm trying to use DSSI plugins in Ardour. As I understand it, they can be used fine as LADSPA plugins, but will just have the generic UI. I added my DSSI plugin path to LADSPA_PATH, and the plugins show up in the plugins list (as LADSPA plugins) and the generic UI works fine. But for some reason I can't get any sound out of the plugins I've tried (note that they work fine when I use jack-dssi-host). LV2 instrument plugins work just fine in Ardour (I don't have any LADSPA instrument plugins to test, but LADSPA effects work). Am I doing something wrong? Here is the basic procedure I am using:
- Create a MIDI track
- Set up MIDI routing in Patchage
- Add a LV2 instrument to test (e.g. MDA ePiano); it works
- Remove the LV2 instrument and add a DSSI instrument (e.g. trivial synth or nekobee); no dice...
Any ideas? I'm using Ardour 3.5.380 compiled from source on Gentoo.
