These updates makes it possible to use windows vst plugins in
linux applications getting very descent realtime performance.

I have successfully ran vst plugins in ardour with 2.66 ms latency.


Linux Vst Compatibility Page


Mandrake binaries: (not the latest versions (yet))

Vstserver 0.2.7 -> 0.2.8:
-Added SCHED_FIFO priority and locking all mem (mlockall) to the
 processing thread. Can be used without being root by for example
 using the givertcap program by Tommi Ilmonen
 To turn off realtime priority, start the vstserver with either
 the "-NRT" or "--nonrealtime" flag.

vst ladspa plugin v0.1.5 - stable
-Fixed the worst nonrealtimeness for the default mode.
 When using realtime priority on the vstserver, it
 should not be necesarry to set LADSPAVST_RT to "1".
