Although I start using linvst I’m converted to yabridge defintly, because it support vst2 and vst3 at 32 bit and 64 bit togheder and it also have a clean manage of plugisn: you can add some folder and after you can scann for plugins and it create automatically the .so files.
I made this guide starting from this video tutorial but I do not use a gui.
Follow this guide:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/winehq.key
sudo apt-key add winehq.keysudo add-apt-repository 'deb https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/ focal main'
sudo apt update
# sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable wine-stable wine-stable-i386 libasound2-plugins:i386sudo apt install winetrickswineboot -u # and follow install all
winetricks -q corefonts vcrun2010 vcrun2013 vcrun2015 win7
You can see releases there
tar -xvzf yabridge-3.5.2-ubuntu-18.04.tar.gz
Add a fonder and sync
Set the folder in witch it create the linux usable plugins
~/yabridge/yabridgectl set --path=<path>
After ad your folders with vst or vst3 plugins, how many you want
~/yabridge/yabridgectl add <vst_folder>
Run a sync to create files
This is definitely the best way to use windows VST and VST3 on linux, but I prefer to use linux native plugin so if you use a newest plugin you can ask to the producer to compile the VST3 for linux beacuse is free and easy for him, I think that in the future linux can have to many plugins.
Enjoy your music and press to obtain linux version of plugins!
