Thanks for a prompt reply. One thing - could you provide me with the full svn path I should checkout? I could not find lmms-extras anywhere in the tree.

This depends on whether you've the win32-version or the Linux version. For the
Linux-version you've to checkout LMMS-extras from SVN and compile them
separately (after installing LMMS). In the win32-version of 0.4.0-rc2 it's
already included. You just need to drag the ZynAddSubFX-plugin from the
instrument-browser (first tab on the left side) into Song-Editor.
Alternatively loading a XIZ-file in preset-browser by double-clicking or
clicking right and selecting according action should work too.

I suggest using the built-in version which is compiled as native binary for
