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 audio graph. 

guitarix provide a jack midi input port to connect a midi controller
(midi learn) and a (3 channel) jack midi output port, feed by a 
(scalable) mix of the tuner and a beat-detector.

Release 0.08.0 comes with a bunch of major changes :

  * new portmap window
  * new BiQuad Filter
  * new Moog Filter
  * new Flanger
  * new post processing tube3
  * new two 10 band parametric EQ's
  * new oversample mode selector(1x -8x)
  * fix some bugs in midi out
  * reworked tuner interface (show frequency(hz))
  * new configure options (see ./waf --help for more info) 

have fun

For capture, guitarix uses the great '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 
zita-convolver library, and, 
for up/down sampling we use zita-resampler,
both written by Fons Adriaensen.

We use the marvellous faust compiler to build the amp and effects and will say
thanks to
         : Julius Smith
         : Albert Graef
         : Yann Orlary 

For faust users :

All used Faust dsp files are included in /guitarix/src/faust, 
the resulting cc files are in /guitarix/src/faust-cc 
The tools we use to convert (post-processing and plot) 
the resulting faust cpp files to the needed include format, 
stay in the /guitarix/tools directory.
