for the LV2 plugs in the pipe.
is that the 'carla-hack' to get JACK Applications running as LV2 plugin? Or is that native LV2?

Means, we port the Guitarix main interface to use GTK(mm)3 instead GTK(mm)2, and port the LV2 plugs, which comes with guitarix to use a X11 + cairo based Interface instead the current used Gtk(mm)2.
We don't plan to provide the full guitarix app as LV2 plugin, currently not.
To use the full guitarix stack as LV2 plugin, you relay on the Carla bridges.
On the road again.

This is a 'hack' to get Guitarix running as LV2 plugin right?

Sure, that's why nsm support would be such a great feature. Especially in combination with Rakarrack probably. About 30 applications have nsm support now. I understand why developers focus on their own application, but they might miss, in their reasoning for priorities, the fact that nsm support gives you a whole list of new features at once (all the features in other nsm applications) and that it gives a huge boost to workflow on Linuxaudio. I can't think of any feature that gives you so much, in relation to the amount of effort you've to put in it.

Nope, that's a feature to make the Carla bridge to LV2 experience more smooth with guitarix. It's part of the integration in the overall ecosystem of linux audio.

I understand your effort to push NSM on Linux, and I respect that, just, keep in mind, please, that other people may have other priorities.
NSM have a couple of issues, and this thread here is the wrong place to talk about that.
As I've said some Years ago, when NSM, makes it into debian, I'll work on implementation for guitarix, otherwise, we may accept patches, but, our priority is still on other stuff.

If, developers of open source audio application will only focus on there own applications, we surly wont be were we are now. So, be a bit careful with your assumptions. :|
Sorry

I really doubt if this will make the Linuxaudio ecosystem any stronger actually. Running JACK applications in a plugin host and then export them to LV2 plugins and running that in a host again. Doesn't sound to me like this is the (Unix) way to do things. Nsm support would be a much better solution imho.

Fair enough, good to hear. Let's see if we can work on that. On the other hand it's a bit of strange reasoning at this moment in time if you ask me, if already 30 applications have nsm support and then making yourself still dependent on what Debian is doing. Debian is known to be very slow on adopting audio applications. That's why kxstudio and avlinux repo's are so useful.

No need to feel offended here, cause it's surely not meant that way. More the other way around actually, to show some understanding.

Phenomenal job with guitarix, the simulations are getting better and better every time a new release is out. The plugins built with the DK tool in particular are even better now.

I will contribute to the project by sharing clips and video demonstrating guitarix presets.

Thank you very much

Keep up with the good job guys, you rock!

@Rodney
I really hope you enjoy the version from git instead this release. We been miles away from this release now. :twisted:
Still some minor bugs to sort out, but, . . .
On the road again.

Thanks a lot for this new version.
I made a video with the master version pulled this morning:
