Hmmmm, both this one and the Flying Delay didn't scan in REAPER for me. They both did show up in the failed to scan list, and clicking them there still didn't get them working. Must be a dependency thing.

Yeah they didn't but I installed the win version and ran them using LinVst and hey worked. They are so CPU light you can use them with LinVst if the Linux version doesn't work.

For now, I'm just leaving the native Linux versions in place, and maybe they'll show up some day. It's happened before when I fixed a problem with some other plugin and suddenly Surge popped up and worked after I had forgotten about it for months.

You can try (using Terminal in the VST plugin folder, where the file is):

ldd (name_of_plugin.so)

Find out if you're missing a dependency.

Both plugins worked for me in Manjaro 20.2.1

I guess I don't understand much about this since when I tried ldd with that compressor (in the folder with the .so file) I only got 33 dependencies compared to your 51. That line you mention was among them and supposedly that particular file's responsibility is for dynamic linking.

However, my line with that file reads as such:

/usr/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007f5c94de0000)

Notice the difference in location (/usr).

This might be an issue that involves the installation location of the plugin, Reaper, or permissions of the files. I install Reaper in home/(my user name)/opt/REAPER, and my VST plugins are installed in a user folder (in my "Documents" folder) so all permissions are for the user. There have been a few exceptions for plugins that install to /usr/lib/vst and /usr/lib/vst3 (not in my user directory) but those all seemed to work fine as well. I use Surge synth from the Manjaro repo for instance and it installs there with root privileges, and it works in Reaper.

I guess you've used other VST3 plugins, but if not: did you copy the entire directory structure "as is" into your VST folder? You need to. VST3 plugins require that kind of structure for some reason. Such as:

Something.VST3/Contents/x86_64-linux/Something.so

This was it. I just extracted the .so and put it in a folder I created because I thought it seemed stoopid to have three folders with nothing in them but more folders, but I guess I was wrong.

Thanks James!

I was confused by that at first myself. I got over that hurdle a few years ago though when I first started using vst3 plugins.

I've got a few VST3 plugins, but they were installed via scripts. Mostly U-he stuff I've bought or installed the demo.

From the short amount of time I had to try it out, the compressor seems to be pretty cool.

I got this message from ldd Fircomp.so:

"/FirComp.so: /usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4: version `CURL_OPENSSL_4' not found (required by ./FirComp.so)"

And locate libcurl.so.4 gives:

/usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4
/usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4.7.0

Which version of libcurl.so.4 is okay?

Your distribution's libcurl probably has v3 ABI compatibility despite the SONAME saying 4.

Glennbo!

I like the way you spelled it: stoopid. I guess if something is really bad we could spell it stoooopid!

I was having a lousy day, and that gave me a much needed laugh.

Thanks!

Default fircomp 2

Hey everyone;

The dev has an update.

fircomp 2 is here: https://jonvaudio.com/fircomp2/

It is a paid Mac/Windows only version - but I emailed him about a Linux version. He said he had one, but doesn't have the resources to support all the different distros. He emailed me the version 2 file, and it works *great*.

Now the page above says there is a Linux version available to test, email him and he'll send you the file.

I told him I don't like to plug products that I get for free and offered to donate. At some point there may be a way to donate, but not now...

So check it out! And tell him that us Linux users are willing to contribute $ for quality plugins.
