How to configure plug ins ?

Okay, I’ve got some plugins in the mixer chain for a track. How do I bring up a box to change the settings of the plugin itself ? AND, do plugins run in realtime in Ardour, whereas in Audacity they are offline only ? Any help is appreciated. I’m not new to audio, I’m just new to Ardour and Linux Audio/Video. Been waiting since 2001 for Mandrake/Mandriva to finally get things all working together correctly. Thanks, John

Realtime plugins (most of them) run in realtime. They can also be run in “freewheeling” mode in an export.

You right click on the plugin name after you’ve inserted it.
