guitarix is a simple Linux Rock Guitar amplifier for jack(Jack Audio Connektion Kit)
with one input and two outputs. Designed to get nice thrash/metal/rock/blues
guitar sounds. There are controls for bass, treble, gain, compressor, preamp,
balance, overdrive, distortion, freeverb, impulse response (), crybaby(wah) and
echo . A fixed resonator will be used when distortion is disabled. For
'pressure' in the sound you can use the feedback and feedforward

This release include all build'in effects also as LADSPA plugins (UniqID 4061 - 4068).
The jconv settings widget include now a wave form viewer with the posibility to 
select a part of the file (offset and length) for the use with jconv.
The Overdrive effect is coupled now with an auto gain correction 
(remove the added gain when run high overdrive level's)
