    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.

  • 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... - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
  • 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 / 7 months 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: Reddit / over 1 year 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: Reddit / over 1 year 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: Reddit / over 1 year ago

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: Reddit / over 1 year ago
