Surge Audio In no inputs

Hello everyone

I am trying to experiment with Surge as an effect as discussed in the manual and github :

I dont seem to be getting any audio ins to connect to . I would be grateful for any assistance

This is currently not possible with the VST3 plugin in Ardour.

You can try the LV2 version of the plugin.

Currently (Ardour 6.9), Ardour only supports VST3 plugins with one pair of Main In/Out and optionally one pair of aux I/O port.

However since surge.vst3 does not have any main inputs, Ardour ignores the optional aux input.

Many thanks Robin , I will give the LV2 a try
