Guitarix goes Neural

Post by tramp »

Hi
Today I've pushed support for the Neural Amp Modeler Core module to github.
https://github.com/sdatkinson/NeuralAmpModelerCore

That means it is now possible to load nam profiles directly in guitarix.
I've tried to implement it as seamless as possible, so I'm now interested in users feedback before I release and push it to the vst version.
The module could be find now under the "Distortion" tab.
I like to know if building from source works out of the box or if a extra call to

Code: Select all

git submodule update --init --recursive

is needed.
I like to know if model loading works seamless.
I like to know if the resampling works seamless
I like to know if someone is able to crash it.
I like to know if the input/output controls cover the needed ranges.

So, if you are brave and have some time to test it out, go and checkout the new sources and give it a try.

On the road again.

That's amazing and completely obvious in hindsight, thanks a lot! :) Is it also able to load impulse responses for cabinets? (Please ignore if Guitarix does that already, I'm not very familiar with it)

You are amazing! Thanks for the constant and valuable work you put into guitarix.

  • I don't know what that extra git submodule command is supposed to do, but it compiled fine without it. (debian bookworm)
  • model loading works.
  • I don't know what resampling is :D
  • no crash during 10 minutes of testing
  • knobs: both in and out were initially on 4 o'clock which was about 90%. I needed to set both to 100% in order to get a satisfying level. Tuning one of the two knobs below 12 o'clock makes it almost inaudible.

Possible bug I found: I'm using an ultra-widescreen monitor (Gnome wayland) and the rack is stretched to full width if I add the nam module.

Did that happen when you add the rack-module or when you load a nam profile to the module? And only with the nam module?

okay, I'll adjust the range a bit, I expected something like this.

I don't know what resampling is :D

That allow to use models initially modelled with a other Sample Rate then the current session use. Most models been modelled with 48kHz.

That's good. So the automatic I've implemented works. :)

Thanks for testing.

It happened when I added the rack-module. I tested a bit further and it's not only the nam module. Both stereo and mono convolvers stretch the rack to full width (haven't tested all modules).

Ah, okay. Those have a label widget to display file names.
The have unlimited size . . . but should always use only the minimal requested size.
Maybe Wayland handle this special combination in a different way then X11.
I've tried to fix that by limit there max size so that they didn't expand bigger then the rack module.
Hope that works.

I've also reworked the range of the in/output controls to give more room for volume boost.

On the road again.
