guitarix is a simple Linux Rock Guitar amplifier and is designed
to achieve nice thrash/metal/rock/blues guitar sounds.
Guitarix uses the Jack Audio Connection Kit as its audio backend
and brings in one input and two output ports to the jack graph.
Release 0.05.0-1 comes with some major changes:
* Completely new source structure by James
* add keyboard shortcuts
* improved skin handling
* add logging window
* improved preset handling
* add middle tone control
* reworked audio engine
* add bypass mode
* add engine state widget
Please read the README for more details regarding the new options.
The standalone version of guitarix is based on GTK2+.
But guitarix is also released as a suite of LADSPA plugins
and can be used in e.g. ardour.
guitarix is licensed under the GPL.
