I found the calf plugins. No more (yet?)

Yes, I found these too.

But my other question still remains: How do I use all this stuff ?
If I start zynjacku it tries to find plugins on the internet. I dont 
know how to load plugins that I have downloaded (I want to try zyn) and 
that should now be somewhere on my harddisk. I have set LV2_PATH to 
/usr/lib/slv2. What next ?

I have used DSSI and LADSPA plugins with ams, audacity, and rosegarden4.
And I even found many free VST plugins that actually work with dssi-vst.
But LV2 still looks like something for the future ? Or can I really use 
it already today ?
