I'm guessing it is, but it's really only a guess.   It's really ironic that a dude like me who only plays sax and Hammond organ with a mono PA for live gigs is working on a WFS system.   Maybe I've 'gone Disco/Electronica' in my senile old age.

Strange that it's harder to make VST's working in ardour today than 6 
years ago when the vstserver was still working. If someone just ported 
the vst->ladspa wrapper to dssi-vst, making special versions
of ardour wouldn't be necessary. (No, I don't have time to do that. :-))
