No. I just said I didn't like what you made of zita-rev1.
And then only after you asked for my opinion on guitarix.

No. As already explained, the design of zita-rev1 includes not only
the DSP code but also the way it is presented, and that is definitely
*not* as a low quality 1950s spring reverb for guitarists. That is
not 'a matter of taste'. You turned it into something which it isn't,
at the same time removing one its qualities: the calibrated controls
which enable the user to set a preset 'from his/her head' which is
something experienced audio engineers do all the time.
> I didn't like how zita-rev1 looks in your original version
Then you could have changed that while still preserving the intention.
And maybe you don't like e.g. calibrated controls because they look
too 'technical' for musicians. In that case just don't use zita-rev1.
It is definitely meant to look technical.

It's not a tip, nor a remark on your abilities, see the context.
A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
