Hi *!

For a class I'll be teaching in fall, I'm looking for a basic set of 
plugins (at least a four-band parametric EQ with graphical UI, a 
compressor, a high-pass, a non-feedback delay, and a reverb) with the 
following properties:

* cross-platform with downloadable binary builds for Linux, Windows, and OSX
* redistributable open-source code
* download free of charge or willing to negotiate a nominal flat rate
* beginner-friendly UI
* bug-free

Obviously, I would prefer LV2 plugins, but VSTs would be acceptable too 
if they run natively on all operating systems. I would also consider 
plugins that exist in different formats native to each OS environment, 
so LV2 for Linux, VST for Windows and AU for OSX, or similar.

That said, I seem to remember a discussion about Ardour binaries 
bundling a set of plugins out of the box - did that actually happen? 
I've only ever used Ardour from source.

Any recommendations appreciated.
