The Disposable SoftSynth Interface, a “LADSPA for instruments” API from Chris Cannam, Sean Bolton, and Steve Harris.

Includes four example plugins:

  • karplong
  • trivial_sampler
  • trivial_synth
  • less_trivial_synth

An example of a DSSI plugin: Hexter is a software synthesizer that models the sound generation of a Yamaha DX7 synthesizer. It can easily load most DX7 patch bank files, accept patch editing commands via MIDI sys-ex messages (ALSA systems only), and recreate the sound of the DX7 with greater accuracy than any previous open-source emulation (that the author is aware of….)

Dssi-VST The dssi-vst package contains a wrapper plugin for Windows VSTs that enables them to be used by DSSI hosts running on Linux or similar on i386, using Wine. dssi-vst was written by Chris Cannam.
