Hi Mark. Sorry about the last post. There are about 2 lines of info. Tried to 
progress to sourceforge to download dssi-vst, but konqueror suddenly starting 
using 100%+ cpu. Don't know if some disgruntled windows user has knobbled the 
sourceforge dssi-vst page. I was going to DL dssi-vst and see if there was 
anymore info about it in the README. Doh. Nigel.
