Linux Requirements:

 


JACK is a low-latency audio server, written for POSIX conformant operating systems such as GNU/Linux and Apple's OS X. It can connect a number of different applications to an audio device, as well as allowing them to share audio between themselves. Its clients can run in their own processes (ie. as normal applications), or can they can run within the JACK server (ie. as a "plugin").

Ardour: Multichannel digital audio workstation for Linux.

Somebody said you could use Windows VST plugins in Ardour...

On Linux ONLY: ... It is also possible to use Windows VST plugins, though not all will function correctly and can make Ardour unstable (you would be using software created for a different operating system - it cannot be expected to be perfectly reliable). The Linux Audio Consortium maintains a page documenting various kinds of VST compatibility for Linux. VST support generally requires build Ardour yourself from the source code.
