So I recently loaded up an old (made in Ardour 7, I’m now on Ardour 8) session which had a track with the Geonkick LV2 plugin. I got a message that said the plugin was not available on the system and had been replaced by a stub. I confirmed that I still had Geonkick installed AND that it was showing up in the plugin manager and plugin selector. I am able to add a new Geonkick track with no issues, but Ardour still isn’t able to link the old track with the plugin.
I was able to find this forum post which involves the same problem I’m having, but with the Calf Reverb plugin. However, it seems that the recommended solution was just “don’t use Calf plugins”, which doesn’t really solve the actual problem. Now that this issue has been documented to have happened on two different plugins, I’m wondering if there is something that can be done within Ardour to solve it. As far as I know, it isn’t happening on any other plugins on my system, but I haven’t had the time to load every single project of mine and take a look. If this is a problem with Geonkick, I’m open to suggestions for alternatives, but I was really hoping there would be a way to replace/ link the stub to the plugin and have it start working again so I don’t have to completely redo the configuration I did in Geonkick.
Thanks in advance for help, and if there is other information you need I would be happy to provide it.
