Do you know of anyone else who would have gone into this 
direction?

I did some initial research in the direction of real-time audio code a little while ago. The most fundamental issue is the hard real-time capability of D. Seems like it should be possible with just a bit of self-discipline in writing the audio code. The essence of this was discussed on this list (thread: "is d-runtime non-gc safe?" in December 2011) Apart from this, it should just be setting up the bindings, pretty much like any other D project using an existing C library. Would be very interested in hearing about your experiences! Greetings, Norbert

Yeah. From what I can tell all you have to do is translate the lv2.h header to a D file (maybe try HTOD), and port that simple amp example in LV2 to D to see if it works.

Thanks for the advices. I used bcd.gen to create the binding 
stubs in D. I will make a more lightweight D integration than the 
lv2-c++-tools.

I will post the results on GitHub when simple examples are 
working.
