At the moment, hosts with DSSI support include:

- Rosegarden-4, version 0.9.9 and later.
- The example host in the DSSI distribution.

DSSI plugins available are:

- A FluidSynth wrapper plugin, also part of the DSSI distribution.
- Xsynth-DSSI, a classic-analog style softsynth.
- A VST wrapper plugin, allowing use of VST instruments and effects.
- Two additional simple demonstration plugins in the DSSI distribution.
