  • Best Studio Recorder software
    The most popular guitar rack software for Linux has to be Guitarix, and it is indeed free. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Best Studio Recorder software
    It has a range of its own plugins, but also works with LV2 plugins and, if things a correctly set up, also VST. Regarding guitar processing, you might want to look into Guitarix: Source: over 1 year ago
  • I've used my Deck as a SoundBoard for my TTRPG season and it was AWESOME.
    I know nothing about music, but I found this, maybe you can use it Source: over 1 year ago
  • Free Pedal Plugins
    Try Guitarix - free & open source, has Lv2 versions of it's effects for import into a DAW environment. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Success: building/installing the latest version of Guitarix from scratch on Ubuntu 20.04
    After that, you can navigate to the folder with the code (the folder containing the waf script), and run the commands as described on the Guitarix home page. It should go without saying perhaps, but you will want to uninstall any existing installation of Guitarix first, before you execute the sudo ./waf install command. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Recording novice here. What should my hardware + software setup look like?
    If you're plugging an electric guitar directly into your audio interface, you'll probably want some form of amplifier and cabinet modeling/simulation for your guitar tone. Check out as a starting point. You could also consider using commercial Windows plugins with and WINE, but this is more complicated to set up and also more likely to run into latency...

  • NeuralPi: Raspberry Pi guitar pedal using neural networks
    > Silly question but why is the Pi necessary? Not sure about this project, but generally it is not. All it needs is a small board capable of running Linux and the necessary drivers for external ADCs/DACs where necessary, plus the digital fx software. As an example, Guitarix runs also on ARM and can work on cheaper boards such as the Orange PI, Nano PI and many others cheaper and more obtanium than the Raspberry... - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
    Guitarix — probably the best virtual guitar amp tools for Linux, it has dozens of individual pedal units for distortion/overdrive/fuzz effects. See also these standalone versions of the pedals. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Moving to Linux and I want to recreate my setup from Windows
    I would also recommend Source: almost 2 years ago
  • What Windows/MacOS features and applications you're missing in Fedora Linux?
    There are surely many amp sims and guitar effects available on Linux, but the "standard" is probably Guitarix Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Finally, with a little tinkering I achieved the goal that I set out to do. DJing on Steam Deck.
    You mean something like this? Source: about 2 years ago
  • Raycasted.... Thing w/ Original Audio | GLSL
    The code for this can be found here on shadertoy! The audio was made with an Ibanez bass, Guitarix, Hydrogen Drums, ZynaddSubFX and Ardour! Source: over 2 years ago
  • Quick history lesson
    As for the guitar amp plugins, maybe the reason the support is not there is because there's a FOSS version that's sufficient for most purposes. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Real time audio processing in linux.
    I sounds like you are trying to write or If you just want the effects, linux and Jack has a ton of them already, there might be one that does the effect you want already. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Now that support for importing Ableton/FL Studio projects has been added, LV2 support would truly make Bitwig the DAW to go to when moving to Linux. There are so many great high quality plugins that can effectively replace paid plugins that are LV2 only.
    For starters, there’s Guitarix which can easily replace Guitar Rig 6 or TH-U. There’s also B. Oops by the brilliant u/sjaehn which I literally just discovered yesterday to replace Glitch 2 or Effectrix. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Dead link on the website
    I don't really know where to put this but on the website Mandriva is listed as a distro to install guitarix on. As you might know Mandriva is discontinued and the link now points to an online casino. You might want to change that to openmandriva and, the descendant of Mandriva. Source: almost 3 years ago
