I haven't been able to make any of these work in Ardour VST except the
JCM900.  Ardour would not load with those in the VST folder.  Are
there any tricks to getting these to run that I could try?

Also, these cause a crash on Audacity (on Windows) with the
VST-bridge...  Not sure if that's related.
