I downloaded the tar but still not in the system
@Christopher1 What operating system are you using?
ZORIN OS 16 is my operating system
@Christopher1 Copy the lv2 plugins to either
/usr/local/lib/lv2/ directory. Go to Ardour’s “Preferences” dialog, select “Plugins” and click “Scan for Plugins”
This is only for VST and Audio Unit plugins (and these days there is Window > Plugin Manager).
LV2 plugins are unconditionally scanned at application start. Restart Ardour after installing the plugin.
I think you need the .zip - likely dragonfly-reverb-linux-x86_64-v3.2.6.zip (from Releases · michaelwillis/dragonfly-reverb · GitHub) the .tar.gz is the source-code, not the binary.
I think zip files are for windows and I am using linux debian/ubuntu based OS
doesnt seem to work , is trying to extract but can not
@Christopher1 There are utilities on Linux that will extract from zip files. You can use
unzip in a terminal, or a graphical tool like file-roller.
Then you will need to provide more details about how you are trying to extract from the file.
I just downloaded from the link provided by Robin and unzip was able to extract all of the plugin files from the zip file. I just ran:
$ unzip dragonfly-reverb-linux-x86_64-v3.2.6.zip
You may want to create a temporary sub-directory first, that did not create a subdirectory when unzipping, and all variants, VST2, LV2, and VST3 of all three reverb plugins are unzipped into your current directory.
