Stevethefiddle 12:21, 2 January 2010 (CST) Updated VST description to indicate that the VST enabler is no longer required in Audacity. Details need to be checked by someone that uses Windows / Mac.
"www.terrywest.110mb.com/easyny.zip easyny.dll and easynyst.dll - mono and stereo "New York" or "parallel" compressor" Removed - it appears to be a dead link and it triggered the wiki spam filter.
- Gale 03Jan10: Thanks, Steve. I've expanded your work a bit, listed the locations Audacity looks for VST plug-ins, and done other overdue tweaks. I've reduced the text in the Forum click here before posting and linked it to the wiki page.
I think the easyny plug-in is legitimate (and it scans clean), but the domain he hosts it on is dubious. I've relinked direct to the dll download (and turned the spam filter off temporarily in order to save the page). That will stop anyone else editing the page with that URL there, so as a few people have said they like that plug-in very much I'll take a look shortly and if the plug-in looks OK I'll host it and re-link.
Steve 23Dec11: A few notes about VST support in Linux:
FST is a program by which uses Wine, Jack and Steinberg's VST Audio Plug-Ins SDK to enable the use of many VST audio plug-ins under Gnu/Linux. http://www.joebutton.co.uk/fst/
a GUI for fst and dssi-vst, allowing you to run Windows VST plug-ins on Linux. Home page for FeSTige: http://festige.sourceforge.net/

Windows in VirtualBox
Probably the easiest way to get support for VST on Linux.
