if you want vsts then use xfst.
it works out of the box. 
builds with a make.

but remember: using vst is using the dark side.
and therefore xfst will by stay underground. 

its only distributed via irc/mail !!!

i am tired of people using my programs without feedback !
the only thing i get feedback for is this stupid vst stuff.

dssi needs jacktransport awareness.
i will not waste dev-time badly needed for jack-midi and distributed
jack on vst !
