Audio Plugin Standard
LV2 is a standard for plugins and matching host applications, mainly targeted at audio processing and generation. There are a large number of open source and free software synthesis packages in use or development at this time. This API ('LV2') attempts to give programmers the ability to write simple 'plugin' audio processors in C/C++ and link them dynamically ('plug') into a range of these packages ('hosts'). It should be possible for any host and any plugin to communicate completely through this interface. LV2 is a successor to LADSPA, created to address the limitations of LADSPA which many hosts have outgrown.
