That particular plugin indeed has 24 outputs. Ardour treats these
outputs as a surround sound configuration. Unfortunately, these
outputs are basically 24 individual mono outputs so panning them
doesn't really make sense. If you don't require these outputs and just
want a stereo configuration you could remove/delete the superfluous
audio ports in the routing grid of the track. That is a bit cumbersome
to do though.
Some other tips: I think you need to press the In button to tell
Ardour which "MIDI source" to use. Did you use a MIDI keyboard to
control redux? If you create midi clip or just load one into the track
you should hear the output without pressing any buttons.
Instead of placing your VSTs into /usr/local/lib or /usr/lib you could
create a .vst directory in your home and add it to the VST_PATH (place
this in your .profile):
Check/add the .vst path in the Preferences->Plugins->Edit dialog as
