Rakarrack: Anything else like it?

Post by arpegadream »

Other than what is in DAW's, are there any stand alone Effects programs that will work in Debian Fork OSs (I use Mint).

I love Rakarrack but worry that it is no longer supported (?) or will stop working one day...

As far as DAW plugins, using Adour, what plug ins would I want to try for the same purpose?

As an all-in-one program, Guitarix is certainly an alternative to rakarrack. Or Kapitonov-Plugins-Pack if you need a more realistic sound.

There are many fans of rakarrack and I don't think it will ever die - someone will always maintain it. There is a modern fork of it, rakarrack-plus: you can show you support to the developer so that they don't abandon it.

@Basslint
Thanks for mention KPP plugins.
I downloaded the binary package KPP-1.2.1-binary-ubuntu-bionic and checked the LV2 versions.
So far, so great!

The Surge team has made a standalone FX version of the surge synth that worth a look.

VCV Rack has great potential as a guitar fx processor. Many of the Surge effects are available there, ditto for the Airwindows and Chowdhury stuff. Plus there are a lot of very interesting modules that aren't guitar-specific but can create some very unusual effects (I'm thinking particularly about the Mutable Instruments clones such as Elements, Rings, and Clouds). Of course, VCV Rack is a modular system, meaning you have to wire stuff together yourself, but if you can already that with fx pedals the system won't seem so strange or challenging.

Best regards,

Experimenting a little with the KPP plugins.
I like the Octaver and the TubeAmp plugin especially.
