jalv (host for LV2 plugins)
Jalv is a simple but fully featured LV2 host for Jack. It runs LV2
plugins and exposes their ports as Jack ports, essentially making any
LV2 plugin function as a Jack application.
Jalv is a small program which is useful, but also intended to be an
appropriate test host for plugin development. It runs plugins from the
command line with no user interaction, is light enough to run in valgrind,
and is capable of dumping all plugin to/from UI communication in a human
For testing with various host toolkits, there are several Jalv
executables: jalv, jalv.gtk, jalv.gtkmm, and jalv.qt. The jalv and
jalv.gtk programs are suitable for production use by users, the others
are less complete and intended for developer testing only. By default,
this SlackBuild only builds jalv (text) and jalv.gtk (gtk+-2.0). If you
really want to build the other UIs, pass ALL_UIS=yes in the script's
environment (and make sure you have gtkmm installed).
This package uses POSIX filesystem capabilities to execute with
elevated privileges (required for realtime audio processing). This
may be considered a security/stability risk. Please read
http://www.slackbuilds.org/caps/ for more information. To disable
capabilities, pass SETCAP=no to the script.
