I understand that these are wrappers that allow to "convert" a Windows VST into a Linux native plugin (of whichever standard).

I understand that all of them are open source community products and the code can be used to enhance their features.

Is anybody not only user of those but even involved in the development of same ?

If one of those could host not just one but multiple Windows VSTs, support for this from Reaper (via some - maybe propriety - "multi-plugin API" towards such a wrapper utility) would be the next step towards an appropriate bridge built-in in Reaper.

(Seemingly Carla already can host multiple VSTs but of course a "multi plugin API" towards Reaper is not yet defined. I don't know if a "dedicated Jack client" is what is appropriate here.)
