I have no idea why, but I have a warm, fuzzy soft place in my heart
for DSSI plugins.  they always seem to just work.  whysynth has
already been mentioned, but be sure to check out the calf monosynth,
which can be run as a DSSI plugin:

jack-dssi-host calf.so:Monosynth

check out the DSSI home page too, for a lot of other options.

I'm hoping this thread will reveal some that I don't know about!  we
really need something like specimen in DSSI format.

why oh why oh why did you throw this paragraph in?  now no one wants
to talk about DSSI anymore... :(
