guitarix is a simple Linux Rock Guitar amplifier for jack(Jack Audio Connektion Kit)
with one input and two outputs. Designed to get nice thrash/metal/rock/blues
guitar sounds. There are controls for bass, treble, gain, compressor, preamp,
balance, distortion, freeverb, impulse response (), crybaby(wah) and
echo . A fixed resonator will be used when distortion is disabled. For
'pressure' in the sound you can use the feedback and feedforward

      I get best result's when use it with a Electret 
      Condenser Microphone (imp High). To use it with  
      a E-Guitar you need to figure out how to set the 
      beatdetector and sensity settings. You get better result's  
      when you only use one pick-up from your guitar.

guitarix based on Gtk, a great part is also realesed as ladspa plugin.
