Thanks for the encouragement. Just back from lunch and trying out
Chris's suggestions about vsti as it looked simple, but so far no luck.
That's for another thread later today if I cannot get it working myself.
One question about all of this. It appears that if I run vstserver
it attempts to start EVERY VST (or even every file!) in my vst
directory?! Is this correct?
My version of Snd does appear to have the LADSPA 1.1 stuff built in
so possibly your example will work for me when I find a VSTi I can trust...
When you do get around to looking at this quicktoot please take a
close look at exactly which VST/VSTi's you mention. I'm finding links
out of date on the Linux VST site for a number of the ones in everyone's
examples (Not only yours.) so I don't know where to find the ones in the
It's probably a bogus thing to do, and I'm not a pd user, but I
tried saving the 'text context' stuff you show and running it in PD. I
get errors about not being able to make connections. Life in Linux land
is not meant to be easy I suppose. ;-)
It's probably a too huge job for someone to really keep care of the
VST page and expect it to always be up to date.
