Let's just say old habits die hard. Plus I might at some point like the
flexibility of JACK, especially netjack, if a project demands a
commercial plugin that does not run on Linux (something like izotope
stuff or other elaborate restauration tools come to mind). That way, I
can do the major part of the work on Linux.

Oh yeah, been browsing free VSTs all evening. What an ordeal. Free beer
for the first one who points out a free (easy) no-bullshit (hard if not
impossible) VST compressor without frills that is useful as a teaching
tool. :( Needs Thres, Ratio, Attack, Release, Knee would be nice,
Make-up, with scales that look at least plausible, even if the
implementation is not precise.

Ideally. For now, I'd go for free as in beer, unless the tools are
sufficiently generic that the student can easily switch to another
sufficiently generic plugin on another platform.

I'll check those out.

Might do that, thanks.

I think the Audacity team has already done that:
Haven't figured out yet how to make Ardour find them, but I guess that
shouldn't be too hard.

Yep, I'm aware of that page. I will point my students to it :)
