guitarix new release

Release 0.03.3-1 include a experimental audio2midi converter to simulate a LiveBandInTheBox.
I get best result's when use it with a Electret
Condenser Microphone (imp High). To use it with
a E-Guitar you need to figure out how to set the
beatdetector settings. You get better result's
when you only use one pick-up from your guitar.

New is also a resampler for the ir.wav files to
set them to the used jack frame rate,
and a commpressor for the input signal.
