<h2>What is DSSI?</h2>
<p>DSSI (pronounced "dizzy") is an API for audio plugins, with
particular application for software synthesis plugins with native
user interfaces. DSSI is an open specification developed for use in
Linux audio applications, although portable to other platforms. It
may be thought of as <a
href="http://www.ladspa.org/">LADSPA</a>-for-instruments, or
something comparable to VSTi.</p>
<p>DSSI consists of a C language API for use by plugins and hosts,
based on the LADSPA API, and an OSC (Open Sound Control) API for use
in user interface to host communications. The <a
href="RFC.html">DSSI specification</a> consists of an RFC which
describes the background for the proposal and defines the OSC part
of the specification, and a <a href="dssi.h.txt">documented header
file</a> which defines the C API.</p>
<p>DSSI is Free Software. The DSSI header file is provided under
the GNU Lesser General Public License.</p>
<h2>Status</h2>
<p>The DSSI proposal is currently at release 0.9, aiming for a
stable API at 1.0.</p>
<p>Two hosts are known to include complete or nearly-complete DSSI
support: <code>jack-dssi-host</code>, which is a reference
implementation included in <a href="download.html">the DSSI-0.9
distribution</a>; and versions 0.9.9 and later of <a
href="http://www.rosegardenmusic.com/">the Rosegarden-4
sequencer</a>.</p>
<p>Currently available plugins include:</p>
<ul>
<li>A FluidSynth soundfont-playing plugin, included in
<a href="download.html">the DSSI distribution</a>.
<li><a href="download.html#Xsynth-DSSI">Xsynth-DSSI</a>,
an analog-style (VCAs-VCF-VCO) plugin.
<li><a href="download.html#dssi-vst">dssi-vst</a>, a
wrapper plugin the enabling use of many Windows
VST plugins.
<li><a href="hexter.html">hexter</a>, a Yamaha DX7 modeling
plugin.
<li>Three smaller example plugins also part of
<a href="download.html">the DSSI distribution</a>.
