I have "headless" (e.g. no graphical front-end) VST plugin that I would like to embed into my ALSA setup to continuously filter my sound. I remember that there used to be a LADSPA plugin which itself embedded/used VST plugins, but I can't seem to find it anymore.

Is there a way to use a VST plugin directly with ALSA? jackd is not much of an option here as it hangs too often on the target (Raspberry) when in real-time mode.
