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.

Another one:
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):
export VST_PATH=/usr/lib/vst:/usr/local/lib/vst:~/.vst
export LXVST_PATH=/usr/lib/lxvst:/usr/local/lib/lxvst:~/.lxvst
export LADSPA_PATH=/usr/lib/ladspa:/usr/local/lib/ladspa:~/.ladspa
export LV2_PATH=/usr/lib/lv2:/usr/local/lib/lv2:~/.lv2
export DSSI_PATH=/usr/lib/dssi:/usr/local/lib/dssi:~/.dssi

Check/add the .vst path in the Preferences->Plugins->Edit dialog as
