@AlmaMater: Updated the PKGBUILD now.

I'm also orphaning the package now. The app never really worked for me so I'm not using it.

@AlmaMater: upstream changed the build system to meson. The PKGBUILD file needs to re-written accordingly. I'll do that later.

@DHMike57: vst2sdk uses an old version of Steinberg's vstsdk downloaded from This is not reliable, IMHO, so we should not depend on that package for building.

With minor modifications we can build as a VST2 host. Patch below if you agree that it should be a default. Needed for u-he synths, for example.
