I'm happy to announce a new guitarix release   

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 0.05.2-1 comes with some changes:

  * remove dependency of the boost library 
    (Many thanks to "thrasher13b" for the patch)
  * fix missing "./" in ./debian/rules reported
    by GMag (AV Linux)
  * add 2 Channel gain and delay chooser to the 
    Jconv settings widget.
  * add scroll/zoom mode to the wave view
  * reworked Jconv settings widget UI
  * various GUI and feature clean-up's 

have fun

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.

For capture, guitarix uses the external application 
'jack_capture' (version >= 0.9.30) written by Kjetil
S. Matheussen. If you don't have it installed, 
you can look here:


For extra Impulse Responses, guitarix uses the 
convolution application 'jconv' created by Fons Adriaensen. 
If you don't have it installed, you can look here:

I(hermann) use faust to build the prototype and will say
