    I always use the ToneLib GFX to record my guitar/bass and since the moment I made the purchase I have not regretted it. I use the plugin on GNU/Linux and I've never had any problems before. I recently switched to Ubuntu Studio 21.04 (previously used version 20.04 of the same flavor) and, inside Ardour (version 6.6.0), it doesn't work properly. I managed to install via terminal and still gave an error when finished. Whenever I try to change the preset it everything froze and the DAW crash. Could any of you help me solve this problem? In the images: installer, how the plugin behaves inside Ardour and terminal.



    As standalone It woks beautifully.

    Go in /usr/lib/ and try to remove the vst3/
    I recovered the preset in Ardour

    Hi, xylph! Your suggestion didn't work for me. I was trying to use Guitarix in the meanwhile, but it's not as good as ToneLib. For a moment, it worked, but Ardour stopped and when it came back it didn't work anymore. If you have another suggestion, I’ll try. Thanks!

    Hello all!
    I'm having the same problem and from what I've found it has to do with the VST3 version of the plugin. I unchecked the following option
    "conceal VST2 Plugin if matching VST3 exists" under plugin options in preferences.

    After than I can select the VST2 from the plugin menu and for the most of the times it works as it should. But, when I'm opening an older project containing Tonelib GFX as a plugin, Ardour instantly crashes.
