Yes, you were right. I found one of those VST plugins that you mentioned and it works 'out of the box'.
It's an amazing job that you are doing, GMaq. Holding a hi-quality Audio-Video OS on your shoulders, replying to every single post. But even before that: building it, configuring, explaining...
I wish I could support you at least financially, but at the moment we are in not so bright economic situation with my wife. But, as all other things, we hope this will soon pass.
Till then, I express my most honest thankfulness for this amazing Distro and help.
