Dear Mark, all,

First of all thanks for all the copious information you provide.

Not sure what you mean with 'political statements', this is the Linux 
Audio User list so I guess it's fair enough to ask what 
software/solutions run on linux, anyway I do see your point.
I use Windows VSTis (I find LADSPA and LV2 very good for effects) 
through dssi-vst (guess it's using the Wine layer somehow).

Just out of curiosity: I see in your specific case you have the dusting 
windows machines, but in general using windows machines as 'hardware' is 
really cheaper (giving for granted that you are paying all the software 
licenses and the cost of the PCs) than buying, say, a hardware sampler?

Wavosaur (simple yet valuable freeware soundforge-like wave editor) also 
works well.

Kind regards,
