I have not been able to get ArdourXChange to work under Wine. Have
you? Had much better luck with AATranslator (which supports many more
formats, both import and export)

They are the same as the LV2 plugins from the LinuxDSP site (which are
really good, BTW). You can use them with plain old Ardour2 & Ardour3,
and likewise, anything that works under A2 & A3 will work under MixBus
(I really recommend the new Calf LV2 plugins, they are pretty sweet).
There's a lot you don't need to use with MixBus, since a lot of stuff
is built into the mix busses and work pretty well (limiting,
compression, tape saturation, high pass filter, etc)
