Default REAPER for Linux: native linux plugins

This thread is dedicated to the use of native Linux plugins and how to run them in reaper.

Discussions about running Windows VSTs on Linux are on topic in: https://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=193761

At the time of writing REAPER supports its builtin plug-ins (REA/JS) and Linux VST2/3 plug-ins. Linux however has more plug-in formats, like LADSPA, DSSI and LV2. Hopefully support for more formats will be added at a later date, but for the moment you can use a plug-in host like Carla http://kxstudio.linuxaudio.org/Applications:Carla to run them.

A list of native Linux VST plugins can be found at: http://linux-sound.org/linux-vst-plugins.html

Tried Carla Rack vst in Reaper with the newest ladspa Guitarix, using
GxAmplifier-X, and some typical GX plugins, without problems,
and with nice results. The plugins have some nice
colorful gui's, and Carla's dark default theme looks nice
with most anything. All in all, a very easy and effective
way forward for guitarists, with a steady stream of new/improved
plugins, and the main guitarix app getting new releases several
times a year. Added the U-he Protoverb, and zyn-reverb for some
nice tube screamer ambience.
Cheers

Oh how I wish I could use Guitarix as a real plugin without Carla/JACK

If you make a FR for lv2 support, I'll +1

FWIW, I made some realtime support for linvst, that's not in the main repo. But I've played back a stereo track and recorded through Amplitube at 64 samples buffer and Guitarrig at 128 (or was it vice versa) for hours without xruns.

osxmidi also added realtime support implemented differently in the latest release, but you need to build it with a special makefile or command line argument. Maybe that will make your amp sims run better at low latency.
