This is fine, but I'd prefer issues were reported at 

Do a small search before reporting something.
If you see a bug/feature-request that you're interested in, leave a 
comment so that I know more people are interested on it.
That way it might be done faster. ;)

Not sure about this, need more details...

But running carla as plugin before running the standalone will not 
display LV2 plugins.
You need to run carla (standalone) and add a plugin at least once.
This won't be needed in the final 2.0 version, but it is for now.

I had other reports of this too.
I changed quite a bit of the linuxsampler code in carla in the last beta 
(trying to optimize memory usage),
so it's very likely something got broke.

Have you tried with the stable 1.x series yet?

You mean synth1 the windows vst plugin, right?

If yes, then it's kinda expected. plugin-bridges (needed to get windows 
plugins running in linux-carla) are a work-in-progress.
The next beta should have them working much smoother, I'm finishing up 
that work now.

Anyway, this issue is very likely caused by synth1 having too many presets.
I need to add a limit like the one for the maximum-parameters.

For the timeout issues, decrease the maximum parameter value to say 30 
and they should go away.
(the new code I'm working on doesn't have this limitation)
