guitarix release version 0.04.6-1

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
  • fuzz

Please read the README for more details regarding the new
build process and the command line options.

have fun


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.
