Default Native Linux plugins that work and sound good

I read the whole thread about native Linux plugins, specifically looking for some that can just be dumped into the .vst folder and will work right off the bat, with no additional bridging, converting, or wrapping needed.

I found links to several things in that thread, but not specific cool plugs that do not need any additional help to get working, or require you to compile them yourself, so I thought I'd start that thread here.

Here's three native Linux 64 bit plugins I found last night that all seem pretty useful. Just uncompress them, drop them into your .vst folder, and they work with no additional steps.

Mverb - Pretty decent native Linux 64 bit verb

Luftikus - A model of a vintage hardware EQ.
https://github.com/DISTRHO/DISTRHO-P...linux64.tar.xz

Dexed - A nice DX7 emulator.

Airwindows plugins (freeware/donationware). Windows, Mac, Linux VST.

However you will want to learn what each plug-in is intended to do otherwise you might think some of them are bad. To learn what the plugins do, you will probably have to watch his YouTube videos for each one.

Have you KXStudio repos installed you can do a search in terminal like this:

apt search vst (I think you should get some)

To bad all the calf plugins isn't in vst mode...yet but it works ok via Carla plugin-ish thing.

Oh, this one I stumble on the other day:

I tried a couple of their freebee synths, and they seem to be solid.

Went looking for a native 64 bit Linux flanger, phaser, and chorus, but after looking and coming up dry, I installed the trusty BlueCat plugin collection for Windows and bridged them with LinVST.

Be sure to check these JS plugins out:

There's a phaser, and it's great. I like several of the other plugins too. Hopefully they all work in Linux.

Hey everybody, I'm jumping in way too late, but I noticed that my project was getting some traffic from this forum. In case anybody is interested, Dragonfly Reverb has had a recent overhaul. This includes a few new dials (width, spin, and wander), better preset selector, and generally a lot of polish. Any feedback is welcome:

That sounds pretty decent just switching between the different sized rooms and hall without even getting into changing any other parameters yet. Thanks for posting this.

Thank you, Michael! This is an excellent reverb plugin and I'll be using it often.

This notch filter is a native 64 bit Linux plug that works just copying the .so file into your .vst folder.

https://www.kvraudio.com/product/not...-teragon-audio

They describe it as a DJ tool for removing vocals, but I would use it for scooping audio in one track to make space for another, and it appears to be functional in that respect.
