There is a bug with the latest version that does not import your plugin
values from an older .ardour session correctly.  This results in
waaaaayyyyyy too much reverb or echo when using GVerb or Tape Delay
Simulation.  Take a look in the original .ardour file (or .bak) and then
look in the one that is saved from the latest version.  You'll see the
difference there.  Paul is aware of this bug.  Also, your plugin
settings (the ones saved in the plugin dialogs) are no longer in the
same place or format.  Taybin has said he will write a converter but I
think everyone is busy with ZKM at the moment.
