Announcing a new release of the hexter 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, and
recreate the sound of the DX7 with greater accuracy than any other
open-source emulation (that the author is aware of...)  hexter
operates as a plugin for the Disposable Soft Synth Interface (DSSI).

No exciting new features come in version 0.6.1, just these:

* Backed out a change in version 0.6.0, where the plugin was
     installed under a different name than the 0.5.x versions --
    something which created headaches for distribution packagers.

* Added a backward-compatibility feature so that version 0.6.1
     can be used with existing projects made using 0.5.x versions,
     without changing how they sound.
