<p>DSSI is a programming API, not an application, so screenshots are
of limited use. But here are a few shots of some of the existing
plugins, so as to give an impression of what it's all for.</p>
<p>Here are four of the plugins available from the DSSI download
page. This screenshot shows the native GUIs supplied with the
plugins, running in the DSSI reference host.</p>
<div align="center"><a href="plof.png"><img src="plofth.png" border="0"/></a></div>
<p>The plugins shown are (left to right) Xsynth, the hexter DX7
modeling plugin, and (above and below) the simple stereo sampler and
polyphonic synth included in the DSSI examples, together with a
qjackctl window showing their audio output connections. To run the
host with this set of plugins, I
typed:</p><blockquote><code>jack-dssi-host xsynth-dssi.so
trivial_sampler.so:stereo_sampler hexter.so
less_trivial_synth.so</code></blockquote>
<p>As you see, the existing plugins have fairly boring GUIs (they
were written by boring programmers, after all), but even so, any
dedicated GUI is usually easier to use for a complex plugin than the
generic plugin GUIs found in LADSPA host applications. For example,
here is an Xsynth plugin hosted in Rosegarden, showing the
Rosegarden plugin GUI on the left and the Xsynth native GUI on the
right:</p>
<div align="center"><a href="plu.png"><img src="pluth.png" border="0"/></a></div>
<p>Rosegarden has the tastier widgets, but the simple fact that the
plugin's own GUI knows the proper organisation for its widgets makes
it much easier to use. (Of course these windows are synchronised --
as you edit values in one, the other updates itself as well.)</p>
<p>Finally, here's a handful of plugins being hosted by Rosegarden,
including one Xsynth, one Fluidsynth plugin (with the Vintage Dreams
Waves soundfont loaded), and a freeware VST plugin (Cheeze Machine)
using the dssi-vst wrapper:</p>
