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 0.04.6-1 comes with some major changes:
* Build environment and source code changes:
- use of the python based waf build system.
- use of the boost library for command line options.
- various code cleanups and source tree restructuring
All this has been done by our new project member James Warden.
* Audio effect and modeling:
- new tube model
Please read the README for more details regarding the new
build process and the command line options.
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.
