mmm. I'm sorry for my arrogant and antisocial habits. I had once again
a little bit of food poisioning or something and i'd just been hiking
near tibet and hadn't had a shower for 1 and half weeks. I was more
aiming at getting at there is not point in suggesting problems/issues
with the ladspa spec as it is no longer being developed. So either you
deal with it's downsides or you write LV2 plugins. It's not like i can
really talk as i haven't ported any of my own ladspa plugins to LV2.
As far as hosts go ingen supports lv2 and is a quite powerful host.
Then again no sequencer or DAW that i know of... ;)  then again i'm
quite out of the loop at the moment.


p.s i hope this doesn't come across as arrogant, your comments about
nothing may seem that way to the authors of those hosts.
