FeSTige is a GUI for fst and dssi-vst, allowing you to run Windows VST plugins on Linux.
 

A complete tutorial/explanation can be seen here

These are the currently FeSTige features:  

  • Search for *.dlls in known locations
    [$VST_PATH, /usr/lib/vst, ~/.wine/Program Files/VstPlugins, etc]  

  • Add extra paths to the search list  

  • Load a specific *.dll  

  • Set a specific WINEPREFIX  

  • Supports LADI (adding VSTs to ladish project, auto-save on SIGUSR1)  

  • Additional advanced options are available too (Wine-RT, chrt, etc)

  • KXStudio : Applications : FeSTige

    FeSTige is a GUI for fst and dssi-vst, allowing you to run Windows VST plugins on Linux.
    This is done through Wine, where the application hosts the plugin and receives/sends audio and MIDI events through JACK.
    Please note that, currently, only 32bit plugins are supported.

    FeSTige scans known plugin folders and displays a list of the available DLLs.
    These "known" folders include:
     

    • $HOME/vst

    • $HOME/.vst

    • $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program Files/VstPlugins

    • $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program Files/Steinberg/VstPlugins

    • /usr/local/lib/vst

    • /usr/lib/vst

    • /usr/lib32/vst

    • $VST_PATH (if set)

    You can add more folders in the preferences.

    The built-in fst implementation supports LADISH Level 1.
    FeSTige can also work with dssi-vst (using 'vsthost'), but it has no save support for it.

     

    The Interface

    A screenshot, with a few VSTs loaded, can be seen below:

    Usage

    Use the menu "Edit" -> "Preferences" to tune it to your needs.
    Select a plugin from the list and click "Launch";
    Or open a specific plugin using the menu "File" -> "Open" (it will open a file browser, so you can pick a plugin that is not in the list).

    The bult-in fst provides LADI Level 1 support (Auto-Save through SIGUSR1 signal, can be disabled in the preferences).
    If you're not using ladish, you can force a plugin save using 'killall -SIGUSR1 fst.exe.so'.

    FeSTige will auto-detect the project folder when used inside a [configured] LADI Room.
    Non-ladish users can use 'FESTIGE_PROJECT_FOLDER' environment variable. Note that this^ will only work for internal fst. For dssi-vst, using vsthost, you cannot save at all.
