There is no difference in the handling of LV2 plugins Ardour vs Mixbus.
If they work in Mixbus they'll work in Ardour [1].

We're not aware of any issues and as far as I can tell, they're very
good quality.

Like with all GUI software, the likelihood of it being 100% bug-free is
small, but in my experience they are very robust and work reliably.
Nevertheless if you discover a problem, please don't hesitate to contact
Harrison support which is very responsive.


[1] A recent change in Ardour's automation handling in Ardour
4.4-98-g0880a16 required updating the plugins.  New versions of Mixbus3
(interim releases) have that fix and include updated plugins. Works for
me with existing license files.
