I'm happy to announce a new release from guitarix   

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 0.05.1-1 comes with some major changes:

  * new jack/port/server connect/monitor/control features 
  * new level meters
  * new noise gate, noise sharper, chorus, bass booster
  * new gain control for the jconv input
  * reworked jconv settings widget
  * a bit polish the GUI
  * new skins and reworked skin menu
  * various bug fixes 

have fun

As ever, suggestions and comments are welcome

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:
