Guitarix – A simple Linux Rock Guitar Amplifier for jack

Sponsored Link
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, middle, treble, gain (in/out), compressor, preamp, tube's, drive, overdrive, oversample, anti-aliase, fuzz, balance, distortion, freeverb, impulse response, vibrato, chorus, delay, crybaby(wah), ampselector, tonestack, and echo. For ‘pressure' in the sound you can use the feedback and feedforward sliders.

guitarix benefits from keyboard shortcuts for most of its operations and guitarix comes with a Jack midi in port to connect a midi controller and provide a midi learn function for every Gui controller. You can save your settings (and midi connections) in presets and load or switch between them easy with keyboard or Midi commands, and indeed over the menu. guitarix comes with a jack port connection widget to easy maintain the connections in a modular workflow and guitarix includes an guitar tuner with a analouge like Interface.

You can call meterbridge over the menu connectet with in and output from guitarix

    Unable to get my electric guitar to work, connected it to line in. I know weak lousy signal, but It worked in some digital guitar-amp app that I found to windows. Which means it should work even better in linux (like everything else) 😉 Could use a little hope regarding this. Thanks

    Actually jack is extremely nice. But it does have a steep learning curve.
    Oh and also people might need a low-latency or realtime kernel, to make this work well.
    I dual boot with ubuntu-studio. I then have a separate playgroung for all these things.
