Commercial sample libraries (and/or effects)
Does anyone use commercial sample libraries (and/or effects) to create/produce songs under LINUX. I have a load of free soundfonts, but would like to work with a little more realistic sounding instruments and effects. I looked at the Garritan Personal Orchestra libraries, but am unsure if they would work under LINUX or that I could make full use of all the features they provide (like effects, etc). What can you recommend and/or have experience with (the good, the bad and the ugly are all welcome). I know that VST instruments/effects can be made to work with wine, wrappers, tutorials and aspirin. But somehow I see Wine more as a temporary solution to get VST instruments working under LINUX. Is there any news on the LV2 plug-in standard as a LADSPA replacement?
