What was the solution, in your case?

There are a couple of ways to do this. One way is to get dssi-vst (and 
it's dependencies), run vsthost yourvstsynth.dll standalone, run 
rosegarden to send midi to it and route the audio from yourvstsynth 
into ardour (via window -> track/bus inspector or the Input edit on a 
mixer strip).

But: crucial would be a working sync between ardour and rosegarden and 
I'm not sure whether this works reliably. There are people on the list 
who should know.
