Hey. Does anyone know of a native Linux tool for easy mix referencing in the likes of https://www.producerspot.com/magic-ab-2-utility-plugin-by-sample-magic

You might get more replies if you describe what this is and waht it does. I read that it's a plugin but I can't for the life of me determine if it's a VST plugin. If it is a VST: have you tried if it works in your favorite DAW in Linux yet?

Good luck! :)

I came across AB Switch here (haven't tried it yet):
http://www.sonejo.net/node/71

Alternatively, using Konfyt
https://github.com/noedigcode/konfyt
consider the following workflow:

In your DAW, add a few tracks containing your reference audio (that you want to switch A/B to). Do not output these tracks to the DAW's master.
In Konfyt, create multilpe patches.
Patch 1: add an audio port connected to your DAW's master.
Patch 2, 3, etc...: add audio ports, each connecting to a different reference track.
Disconnect your DAW's master output from the system output (so that it only plays through Konfyt's patch 1).

Now, when playing back your DAW, you can switch between patches in Konfyt, and this will act as an A/B(/C/D/E/F...) switch, similar to Samplemagic A/B 2.

Thanks! Those are some good options.
