Yes ... both packages shipping same plugin now ...
What would be correct solution ?
Replace Breaks Conflicts ?
Or maybe just remove vocoder-ladspa package from archive ...
If I understand right this plugin has been moved to swh-plugins
project by same people which maintain vocoder-ladspa package.



best regards
