+== Simple Amplifier ==
+This plugin is a simple example of a basic LV2 plugin with no additional features.
+It has audio ports which contain an array of `float`,
+and a control port which contains a single `float`.
+LV2 plugins are defined in two parts: code and data.
+The code is written in C, or any C compatible language such as C++.
+Static data is described separately in the human and machine friendly http://www.w3.org/TeamSubmission/turtle/[Turtle] syntax.
+Generally, the goal is to keep code minimal,
+and describe as much as possible in the static data.
+There are several advantages to this approach:
+ * Hosts can discover and inspect plugins without loading or executing any plugin code.
+ * Plugin data can be used from a wide range of generic tools like scripting languages and command line utilities.
+ * The standard data model allows the use of existing vocabularies to describe plugins and related information.
+ * The language is extensible, so authors may describe any data without requiring changes to the LV2 specification.
+ * Labels and documentation are translatable, and available to hosts for display in user interfaces.
