Summary0009099: I cannot use Vital in Ardour 7.1.
DescriptionNice to meet you. I would like to report a problem.

I am enjoying Ardour 7.1, but I have a problem.
It is that Vital installed in {.deb} format is not recognized by Ardour7.1.
Ardour 6.9 recognized them properly, but 7.1 does not show them in the plugin list no matter how much I scan.
This is probably a bug and I am reporting it.

I love Ardour, I use it all the time.
Thank you very much.

Where is the plugin installed to?
 Is it a LV2 or VST2? If the latter have you configured Ardour to search that location?

Yes, I have set up VST2 and VST3 folders to search, and both Ardour version 6.9 and 7.1 have the same search settings, but for some reason 7.1 is the only one that does not recognize Vital.

Of course, the version of Vital is the latest version currently available.

There should be no difference for VST3 plugins between Ardour 6.9 and 7.1 - so this is a bit of a mystery
Is there any information in Ardour's Plugin Manager when you scan for the plugin?

PS. there should be no need to set a custom VST3 path same for LV2 (only VST2 requires this).

I'm sharing images from my scans with each of Ardour 6.9 and Ardour 7.1!

(I've been using the VST3 version for a long time because I couldn't figure out how to get the LV2 version to work.)

Select the Vital.vst3 and at the bottom the error message should show

That looks like is back.

I saw the page you linked to.
Does this mean that the problem is on the Vital side and not Ardour?
Sorry if I am wrong X(

Yes, it is a problem with Vital not being statically linked. Consequently, it clashes with some hosts, because they both use different versions of the same software libraries. Plugins should always be statistcally linked.
