yep, dssi and vsti support (either native linux or windows through
dssi-vst) will come soon. i am working on it and still have some
low-level design decisions to make, specially regarding a seamless
integration of midi driven plug-ins. you know, with vst there's also the
possibility of midi plug-in effects ...

this has been already asked and answered elsewhere... here:

bottom line seems to be that the vst-sdk support that are now being
required for qtractor is for _native_ linux vst plug-ins and not for
win32 dlls linked trough wine as is what dssi-vst does

otoh, qtractor does have now this dssi interface, so you can have
windows vst support by proxy though dssi-vst and thus wine too. got that?
