VST Support in Linux

So after much trial and error, I got VST support (think Cubase, or Fruityloops, or Ableton) to work in Linux. I have since installed MANY free VSTi’s (a great list can be found at http://www.freesoundeditor.com/incageneng.html?VSTSyntheng.htm~main) . Some of the more interesting ones on that list are made by ArcDev noise Industries (http://device.antisound.net), and after some emailing back and forth with him, he asked me to write a short synopsis on how to get VST Support to work in Linux. I accepted his challenge.

Here is an “alpha” version of my “Short Synopsis on how to get VST support to work in Linux“. Enjoy and feel free to contact me with questions!
