gx_head is a simple guitar mono tube amplifier simulation based 
on the work we have done in the guitarix project. 

We decide it's time to sync our project name and our project we work on.
So we replace guitarix /gx_head by guitarix2,
This release is a full replacement for guitarix and/or gx_head in any sense.
You cant have install the old guitarix and/or gx_head parallel to this release.
Please uninstall all older versions before use this one.

please refer to our project page for more information:


new features in short:

  * reworked GUI controllers 
  * reworked rc-style files
  * replace clean tube modes by a clean <-> distortion controller
  * new cab models and controls (level, bass, treble)
  * new tonestack models
  * make tonestacks and cabs a move-able module 
  * cleaner effect rack construction 
  * customizable effect rack order (horizontal, vertical)  
  * a bunch of what I have forget to mention here 

have fun

For extra Impulse Responses, gx_head uses the 
zita-convolver library, and, 
for resampling 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 /gx_head/src/faust, 
the resulting .cc files are in /gx_head/src/faust-generated 
The tools we use to convert (post-processing and plot) 
the resulting faust cpp files to the needed include format, 
stay in the /gx_head/tools directory.
