The auburnsounds plugins just got updated and now work in Ardour and Mixbus.
The issue report was sent last month, so it took over a month for this new update which came out 2 days ago. All their three plugins no longer cause Ardour and Mixbus to crash.
in case anyone has tried these plugins in Linux —
– if you spot a problem with a plugin that crashes ardour/mixbus feel free to report them to the developers of those plugins as that is the only way plugins would get fixed. There’s a tendency among users to presume the issue is first with Ardour/Mixbus, but the thing is plugins in Ardour/Mixbus run within the same space as the main daw, so there is no plugin-crash protection.(the argument is it helps to reduce latency)
Ardour/Mixbus staff do not take care of fixing third-party plugins, that’s the job of end-users to send the report. There are small plugin teams who cross-build their plugins and do not have resources to test their plugins for Ardour on Linux, so we need to be a little more pro-active about it and inform them of issues.
