Guitarix is a simple mono amplifier to be used in a 'JACKified' environment,
i.e. a system using the JACK Audio Connection Kit, a professionally-capable
audio/MIDI server and master transport control.
Guitarix provides one JACK input port and two JACK output ports. It is designed
to produce nice trash/metal/rock/blues guitar sounds. Controls for bass, treble,
gain, compressor, preamp, balance, distortion, freeverb, crybaby (wah) and echo
are available. A fixed resonator is used when distortion is disabled. To modify
the sound 'pressure', you can use the feedback and feedforward sliders.
Guitarix includes an experimental tuner and a JACK MIDI output port with 3
channels. They are fed by a mix from a pitch tracker and a beat detector. You
can pitch the octave (2 octaves up or down), choose the MIDI channel, the MIDI
program, the velocity and the sensitivity, which translates into how fast the
note will read after the beat detector emits a signal. Values for the beat
detector can be set for all channels.
