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 contain a single `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.
-Turtle is a syntax for the RDF data model,
-but familiarity with RDF is not required to understand this documentation.
-Generally, code is kept minimal,
-and all static information is described in the data.
+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
- * It is simple to work with plugin data using scripting languages, command line tools, etc.
- * The standard format allow the use of existing vocabularies to describe plugins and related information
- * The data inherently integrates with the web, databases, etc.
- * Labels and documentation are translatable, and available to hosts for display in user interfaces
+ * 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.
