Thanks, I will ignore these errors then.

Which ones would you suggest?

Come to think of it, given JACK I could do the gain reduction metering
myself if the plugin doesn't support it. Just put a good meter before
and after the effect and compare.

For session management it seems not much has changed. There is
JACK Session, NSM, LADISH (Claudia) and some simpler solutions that
mostly can't restore internal state, correct?
Given that some programs don't support any session management protocol
(OBS, possibly others) what would you recommend?
