I can confirm that the latest version (3.2.6) works with the current WineHQ wine-devel version (5.10) on my machine. If you can't upgrade to that Wine version, then you need to install a pre-3.2.x version, e.g., SpitfireAudioWinSetup-3.1.18.exe, and add the

Code: Select all

"skip_updates": true
patch I outlined above to the 'lm.conf' file, preventing it from auto-updating to 3.2.6.

The file is too large (4 Mb, really?) for me to upload here. I can send it to you via e-mail if you need it: please DM me if so.

It still doesn't work for me :( I suspect I'm experiencing a different issue from you guys, though. The main application (the one you install the samples from) works fine, and always has: I get a segmentation fault (with no additional info) whenever I try to load the VST via dssi-vst instead. It used to work more than fine up until a few months ago, until the segmentation fault arrived (possibly after some update, can't remember). Any time an update comes out for the application and/or Wine, I hope it fixes it, but that never happens...

I mentioned dssi-vst because it was the only one that got it running for me at the time: festige (fst.exe on Fedora) apparently doesn't help either, the version of Carla I have comes with no Windows VST support, and I never managed to install LinVST properly. Is there any other method known to work that I should look into?

FWIW, I'm using the LinVST binary from https://github.com/osxmidi/LinVst/releases/tag/2.8.

That's what I tried too, but I couldn't get it to work in Ardour, and I didn't find a way to use in on its own, e.g., via command line. I'll have to invest some more time on this, as good chances are I'm doing some stupid mistake.

I didn't find a way to use in on its own, e.g., via command line.
For me, the LinVst .deb file installed '/usr/bin/linvstconvert' (a simple GUI version) as well as '/usr/bin/linvstconvert6432' (simple Python script run via CLI) and '/usr/bin/linvstconverttree' (seems to be nearly the same GUI version). The Python script is illustrative:

Code: Select all

#!/usr/bin/env python3

import shutil
import sys 
import glob
import os
import argparse
                
parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
parser.add_argument('src_path', action='store', type=str, help='"path to vst dll folder/*" (** for subdirectories); Path is enclosed in quotes, for example linvstconvert6432 "/home/user/vst/*" or linvstconvert6432 "/home/user/vst/**" for subdirectories')
args = parser.parse_args()
files = glob.glob(args.src_path, recursive=True)

for file in files:
    if file.endswith( ".dll" ) or file.endswith( ".DLL" ) or file.endswith( ".Dll" ):
          sofile = file[ 0: -4 ] + ".so"
          shutil.copyfile( '/usr/share/LinVst/64bit-32bit/linvst.so', sofile )

Apologies, I should have clarified: I did manage to use the convert tools, and get .so files out of those. The issue is that when I update the Ardour VST paths, it seems to find them but then doesn't list them, so I can't use any of those there. By using them on the command line, I meant some other tool by which I could load these .so VSTs out of the context of a DAW (a bit like Fluidsynth can load a SF2 or sfizz an SFZ). I haven't tried if this .so version works with Carla, though, maybe I should.

Nevermind that, I'm an idiot! The plugin was indeed there, it just had a different name (LABS) than the one I expected (I was looking for Spitfire or LinVST), which is why I couldn't find it. Just tried now and it does indeed work, yay!
