Rakarrack: Guitar FX For Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux-based guitar effects processors haven't exactly been flourishing
| recently. Until recently, the guitar FX processors page at linux-sound.org
| listed twelve projects, of which the most recent maintenance date is 2006.
| Clearly, not a flourishing domain for Linux audio developers. Not that Linux
| lacks realtime effects processing capabilities: Pd can be pressed into any
| audio service imaginable, the JACK Rack can be configured for LADSPA-based
| effects, but they are not organized and optimized specifically for
| guitarists. However, a thirteenth entry has joined the collection at
| linux-sound.org, and this entry is most definitely organized, optimized, and
| intended for guitarists.
