dssi-vst 0.3 released!

The 0.3 release of dssi-vst is now available.

dssi-vst is a DSSI plugin wrapper for VST effects and instruments
with GUI support, allowing them to be loaded into any DSSI host.
It requires a fairly recent version of Wine (this calendar year at least).
dssi-vst is available from the download page at


The main improvement since the initial 0.1 release is that dssi-vst
now works correctly with plugins with complex GUIs that use
back-channel information to communicate things like patch data to
the audio plugin.  In practical terms, this means that VSTs with
test keyboard widgets, patch load and save, and other natty features
in their GUIs should work properly as DSSI plugins without losing
automatability for the true automatable parameters.
