I run a 32-bit chroot inside my 64-bit main environment. I haven't
tried any VSTs in it but it works perfectly with win32codecs so I
suspect VST support might work that way also.

I don't tend to keep it very up to date since it's a second Gentoo
environment to completely rebuild but it works for the few things I
need, specifically java on a certain website.
