"The Linux version can be used in any host that supports VST/VSTi plugins compiled for Linux. The current list includes Renoise along with the eXT2 and QTractor audio/MIDI sequencers and the JOST multi-format plugin host. Discovery is available only as a plugin, there is no standalone version.

"There's no lack of patches for this synth. Discovery comes with 40 banks of sounds, with 128 patches per bank. If nothing there satisfies your ears you can try some of the 3rd-party patch banks listed on the discoDSP Web site. If you're still not satisfied you can import Nord Lead2 sysex data (see the electro-Music archives for Nord sysex files), or you can learn to program the synth yourself."
