+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 readable format.
+To make it simple to test plugins in hosts that use different toolkits, there
+are several Jalv executables: jalv, jalv.gtk, jalv.gtkmm, and jalv.qt. \ No newline at end of file
