libTritium: Not a public API, yet.
HOW TO USE THE PLUGIN
To use the plugin, you need the following:
* A program (host) that loads LV2 plugins.
* A MIDI controller.
* An audio output device. :-)

The first time you run the sampler, it will create a file
~/.composite/data/presets/default.xml, which will set up presets on

Alessio Treglia - For quickly packaging 0.006.1 and getting
it into Debian sid.
Benoit Delcour - For quickly testing and reporting this
issue with the LV2 Sampler.
