3 Supported plugin types

Currently, Zynthian supports only LV2 plugins compiled for RBPi (ARM):

Here is an unmaintained repository of LV2-plugins for Zynthian: https://github.com/zynthian/zynthian-plugins/tree/master/lv2

Support for VST, DSSI and LADSPA has been removed for simplicity, but it could be re-enabled in the future if we have good reasons for doing so.
