> Native VST support is a bane. It will drag along the VST license

I wonder if commercial plugin manufacturers think LV2 (if they know of
it) is too much of a risk from submarine patents and the like: if they
license VST, they can stand behind Steinberg in the case of any legal
action, whereas if they implement their plugins in LV2, they have to
stand on their own??

Not sure how much basis in fact this line of thinking has, but I
wouldn't be surprised if it is behind some companies seeming
reluctance to embrace LV2.. On the other hand it could just be
laziness and inertia - I imagine if the plugin is already written for
VST in windows, it is considerably less work to port the VST to linux
as native VST rather than recode it for LV2.
