Updated: I found a PD mellotron patch someone created that works pretty well! Still curious about how VSTs work in relation to ARM so I thought I’d leave this up.
So I just switched to patchbox OS because my PI day Pisound & case came in the mail!
So one thing I want to do is run a mellotron VST. I downloaded one and tossed it in the Audacity VST directory (I tried /usr/local/bin/plug-ins and /usr/bin/plug-ins which is what the Audacity wiki told me to do) and it wouldn’t load from either location.
So then I installed Reaper and tried the same thing and it failed. I downloaded a couple more mellotron VSTs that I found & they wouldn’t load either. I’m guessing that the VSTs I downloaded aren’t ARM compatible and were only designed for 32/64 bit systems.
Advice? How do you handle VSTs in patchbox OS and where do you find compatible ones?
