hi all,

just bought/downloaded/installed ardour 4 on my os x (yosemite) machine 
and everything's running smoothly - very pleased to have fully 
functioning new ardour versions back on mac! i've been (happily) working 
with 2.8.16 until now.

one thing i noticed though: ardour 4 is not seeing any of my LADSPA 
plugins, only the AU ones. are they not compatible, or do i need to do 
something to get them working? i see this in the manual:

" Unless you're a particularly technical computer user, building and 
installing plugins in the LV2 (or LADSPA) format is probably not 
something worth planning on. Ardour releases for OS X ship with a 
collection of many LADSPA plugins, some of which are very useful and 
some of which are outright buggy.

Most of the plugins you are likely to use on OS X will be in Apple's 
AudioUnit format. These have their own installation process that tends 
to just work."

this may be the case, but there are a few LADSPA plugins (like the 3 
band parametric EQ) that i'm now quite accustomed to working with in 

all my plugins are in -/Library/Audio/Plugins. i tried copying then into 
-/Users/[Home]/Library/Audio/Plugins  and into the Plugins folder in the 
ardour 4 package contents as well, but to no avail. pointers?
