The official 1.7.0 and 1.7.1 binary Linux releases of Surge contain only the VST3 plugin, which is nearly useless under Linux (at least Ardour does not support it).

Therefore If I update surge-synthesizer-bin (which is the AUR package for the official binary release) there will only be a VST3 plugin. See also

The official arch package is already at 1.7.1, see This contains VST3 & LV2 plugins.

For 1.6.6 surge-synthesizer-bin contains more than the arch package (it contains VST2,VST3 & LV2), but now it would contain less (only VST3).

Therefore I leave this package at version 1.6.6.

See for Surge Synthesizer for all possible plugin types (LV2/VST2/VST3).

Thank you very much, that's indeed where it is. I was expecting it to be at /home/.vst

Sorry for the vague description, yay is a command-line AUR installation helper.

I don't know "yay helper". The location for installed files is determined by each AUR package individually. VST plugins should be installed to /usr/lib/vst/

Does anyone use yay helper to install vst plugins overall? Any idea where does yay install them?

Thank you!
