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 0.05.9-1 :

  * add Midi learn (by Andreas Degert)
  * add internal direct convolution unit with 7 filter kernel (amp models)  
  * add LADI level1 support
  * add a new light skin
  * reworked multi thread handling(by Andreas Degert)
  * reduced CPU usage for Oscilloscope

To the midi learn function: a middle mouse button click on a controller pop's 
up a little widget, move the midi controller you will use, the controller number
is shown in the widget. Press OK when you've done. That's it. 
By the way, a right click on a controller pop up a spinbox for direct enter 
the value with your keybord.
