       jack-dssi-host - a simple JACK host for DSSI plugins


       jack-dssi-host [-v] [-a] [-n] [-p <projdir>] [-c <cname>] [-<i>] <libname>[:<label>] [...]


       jack-dssi-host  is  a  simple  DSSI host that listens for MIDI events on an ALSA sequencer
       port, delivers them to DSSI synth plugins, and outputs the resulting audio via JACK.
       jack-dssi-host can host up to 16 instances  of  DSSI  synth  plugins,  each  of  which  is
       sequentially  assigned  a  MIDI  channel  from  1  to  16.  Plugin outputs (if `-a' is not
       specified) are connected  sequentially  to  the  available  JACK  physical  output  ports,
       wrapping  back  to the first JACK port whenever the available ports are exhausted.  Plugin
       user interfaces (UIs) are started for each instance (if '-n'  is  not  specified.)   jack-
       dssi-host will exit when the last plugin UI has exited.
       As  a  special case, if jack-dssi-host is started with a name other than `jack-dssi-host',
       and if that name (plus an `.so' suffix) can be found in the  DSSI_PATH  search  path  (see
       ENVIRONMENT  below)  as  a  valid  plugin  shared  library, and if no further command line
       arguments are given, then the first plugin in that library will be  loaded  automatically.
       This  provides a convenient way to run a plugin by simply symlinking the plugin's basename
       to jack-dssi-host.


       -v     Verbose mode.

       -a     Disable automatic connection of outputs to JACK physical outputs.

       -n     Disable automatic starting of plugin user interfaces (UIs).

       -p <projdir>
              The project directory to pass to both plugin and UI.

       -c <cname>
              The client name to use for ALSA and JACK.

       -<i>   Number of instances of the following plugin to run (max 16 total, default 1).

              Name of the DSSI plugin shared library (.so) to load. This may be an absolute  path
              to  the  library  file,  or just the filename itself, in which case the DSSI search
              path is searched (see ENVIRONMENT below).

              the label of the plugin to load from the library.  If this is  omitted,  the  first
              plugin in the library is used.

       [...]  Optionally more instance counts, plugins and labels.


       jack-dssi-host -2 -1
       Runs two instances of the first plugin found in, assigned to MIDI channels 1 and 2
       and connected to the first available JACK outputs, and one instance of the "fuzzy"  plugin
       in on MIDI channel 3 and connected to the next available JACK output.


       jack-dssi-host will search for plugin shared libraries in the directories specified by the
       environment variable DSSI_PATH,  which  is  a  colon-separated  list  of  directories.  If
       DSSI_PATH  is  not  set,  a default search path of /usr/lib/dssi, /usr/local/lib/dssi, and
       (assuming the environment variable HOME is set,) $HOME/.dssi is used.
