Open-Source Guitar Sound Effect Processor

No Comments

I wish GNUitar, a guitar effects software processor existed 7-8 years ago, when one of my main interests was my good old electric guitar. If I recall correctly, I had tried some computer programs under Windows back then, which tried to simulate a hardware sound processor. Acoustically, the result was fine, but from a technical point of view, trying to actually play the guitar was a pain because of the latency of the soundcard drivers. GNUitar seems to perform better in Linux, even with low-end hardware (4-8ms latency is not a problem at all). Unfortunately, I don’t have time to test it, but I will do in the near future, as I consider this type of software very interesting. Also, the program’s documentation includes much information about the configuration and any performance issues that may rise, so do not miss it.
