Hi

Rakarrack is a richly featured multi-effects processor emulating a guitar  

effects pedalboard.  Effects include compressor, noise gate, graphic
equalizer, parametric equalizer, flanger, chorus, echo with reverse
playback, musical delay,  reverb, digital phaser, analogic phaser, wah-wah,

alien-wah, harmonizer, and three flexible distortion modules including
sub-octave modulation and dirty octave up.  Most of the effects engine is
built from modules found in the excellent software synthesizer ZynAddSubFX.
Presets and user interface are optimized for guitar, but Rakarrack
processes
signals in stereo while it does not apply internal band-limiting filtering,
and thus is well suited to all musical instruments and vocals.  Rakarrack
is
designed for Linux distributions with Jack Audio Connection Kit.
