Apologies for digging up an old thread, but it had something I was 
interested in in it....

The latter quote was from Paul, I was wondering if the Duende would even 
run in Linux?  I was under the impression it required a specialized 
driver, and if SSL had any plan on releasing said driver for linux, or 
if you even knew Paul(Or Anyone)?  Personally I had been looking at it, 
but seeing as my primary audio workstation, where I would use it, is 
Linux it doesn't do me a lot of good if I can't get drivers for it.

Once the drivers exist I would have no problem running it as a VST in 
the same way I run anything else(FST) as long as it would do so, but the 
need for drivers for the hardware does concern me in as far as whether 
or not it would be capable.
