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 to the jack audio graph a mono amplifier input/output port,
and a FX mono input with two (stereo) output ports.

guitarix provide a jack midi input port to connect a midi controller
(midi learn) and a (3 channel) jack midi output port, feed by a
(scalable) mix of the tuner and a beat-detector.

Release 0.09.0 comes with following changes :

* make distortion a multiband distortion
* fix bug in resample IR-files
* resample IR-files now on-the-fly
* add insert point ports to the effect chain
* add --optimization flag for configure the build
* switch to double precision instead of single precision
* fix bug in reconfigure convolver when preset change
* add patch from Peder Hedlund, build against gtk-2.12.9 and gcc-4.3.1
* add faust 0.9.24 to the "good_faust_versions"

have fun

NOTE:// Andreas have found and solved a bug in the IR-file resampler,
that means that all the files you have resampled with guitarix, are
"NOT RESAMPLED", only the header was change.
To get rid of this, please remove the resampled files and rename the
files with the extension .orig (remove .orig)
That sucks, sorry for that.

here is a nice YouTube video about what you can do with guitarix:

(Thanks stevie :-))

For capture, guitarix uses the great 'jack_capture'
(version >= 0.9.30) written by Kjetil S. Matheussen.
If you don't have it installed,
you can look here:


For extra Impulse Responses, guitarix uses the
zita-convolver library, and,
for up/down sampling we use zita-resampler,
both written by Fons Adriaensen.
If you don't have it installed, get it here:


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 /guitarix/src/faust,
the resulting cc files are in /guitarix/src/faust-cc
The tools we use to convert (post-processing and plot)
the resulting faust cpp files to the needed include format,
stay in the /guitarix/tools directory.
