I'd like to try it with Ardour. :)
Why? Ardour3 supports linux vst too, Qtractor also.
All the main opensource daws support linux vst's AFAIK.

Hm,
I already installed the Uhbik's to my system via ./install.sh and just the Bitwig trial recognizes them.
LV2 are automatically added in Ardour3. So should LinuxVST?
Reaper 5, Logic X, Cubase 8, Bitwig, Ardour 4, Mixbus 3 - why not? ;)

" Linux VST (LXVST) plugins are distributed as shared library files. They are typically installed in /usr/lib/lxvst, /usr/local/lib/lxvst or a directory mentioned in your LXVST_PATH environment variable."

So you will need to point where the vst's are installed.

if you open a terminal you can add the environment variable like this.
($ is promptsign)
$ export LXVST_PATH=/usr/lib/vst:/usr/lib/lxvst:$HOME/.vst:$HOME/vst/

In this case ardour would search in /usr/lib/vst, /usr/lib/lxvst for linux vst's but also in your home subdirectories .vst (if there is a point before the name then it's a hidden file of directory) and vst/

Now the environment variable would be lost if you would reboot you system, or logout also(not sure) so you need to store the export command in a file.

I store it in ~/.bashrc zo everytime i log in, the variable is set.

If I do

$ export LXVST_PATH=/usr/lib/vst:/usr/lib/lxvst:$HOME/.vst:$HOME/vst/

nothing new show up in Ardour3. I already restarted it.
Reaper 5, Logic X, Cubase 8, Bitwig, Ardour 4, Mixbus 3 - why not? ;)

I did not try the plugins with Ardour. Does Ardour supports VST shell plugins?

Well I tried SATIN in Ardour 3, and it works and sounds GREAT!
The only bug i encountered was that I couldn't get the drop down menus to work.

First of all, thanks for this amazing release !

All plugins suffer from the same bug on my computer: drop down menus do not work correctly. They show up, but clicking on an option does not have any effect (drop down menu disappear, but option is unchanged).

No other obvious problems, audio is wonderful !

Configuration : up-to-date ArchLinux 64 bits, with gtk3. Host is Renoise 3.0.1.

Let's debug it, can you open a terminal, and start the following command:

Code: Select all

$HOME/.u-he/Diva/dialog.64 menu entry1 1 entry2 2 entry3 3
Can you click on entry2 and tell me what you see in the console?

Also as a temporary workaround you can the mouse wheel instead of the menu.

Thanks :)

Maybe it is because of your prompt which erase the output.
Can you try this one please?

Code: Select all

result=$($HOME/.u-he/Diva/dialog.64 menu entry1 1 entry2 2 entry3 3); if [[ "$result" = 2 ]] ; then echo OK ; else echo FAIL; fi

Nope I'm using Ardour 3.5.403 64bit on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
I tried it on a bitwig demo and there the drop down menus work.


I forgot to say that when I load the plugins in Ardour i get a warning:

[WARNING]: /usr/lib/lxvst/Satin.64.so: is a VST >= 2.4 - this plugin may or may not function correctly with this version of Ardour.
