DescriptionIn Carla Airwindows linVSTs seems to show friendly parameters where they applies but same linVST in Ardour 5.12 does only show a numeric value.
The reason for the ticket is to make sure this is considered before 6.0 is released unless it is already fixed.

See the two attached screen shots.

Carla also seems to "understand and represent" the value in dB including unit

Ardour 6 has displayed this for a while already, not the unit label though. I'll see if that can be added.
