Calf studiogear is an extensive and high quality plugin pack for professional audio production under Linux. It provides a lot of synthesizers, effects and signal processing for the use with LV2 audio production suites (like Ardour) or as stand-alone through JACK.

Calf with all of its new features and processors isn't officially released by now so you have to grab the GIT-repository from sourceforge.net until we are ready for a stable release.

guess is a tool to launch (and kill) different setups of programs. It was invented to startup all needed synthesizers, audio suites, MIDI sequencers and stuff with the correct source files on the right desktop for a single audio production with just one click.

Guitarix: First Steps Towards New Design

Layout.svg.2015_02_21_01_03_48.0There was a call for participation from Hermann Meyer, the main developer of Guitarix, for creating a new user interface for his very cool project. It may create the impression that I don’t know how to spend my days but I couldn’t resist to get in touch with him to talk about his wishes and preferences. Fortunately he had enough trust to give me a carte blanche so I started thinking about a visual concept. Earlier this day I sent him an export of my very first steps in Inkscape and it seems it met his expectations and preferences. He gave me commit access to the SF git repo so I’ll start implementing stuff as soon as my scribbles reach a mature state.

Don’t expect that things are done next week since the image represents a quit early stage of brainstorming. In addition Guitarix is in a rather advanced state and offers a quite complex user interface so realization will take its time. But it’s a start at least.

    Thank you so much for this! I love the design of Calf and really love the functionality of guitarix. A guitarix that has a design as beautiful as calf will be so great. 🙂

    Hi Markus, I just want to thank you for this awesome GUI. Greetings from Montevideo city, Uruguay (yep, it come just that far !) Really, thank you for your hard work. It’s a pity it is not available into Ubuntu’s nor Mint’s repository yet (and those are mainstream linux) I had to compile it myself but it was worth, the new GUI is far more beautiful and furthermore, it improves the usability a lot.

    Hey Ignacio,

    thank you very much for your kind words!

    Best Markus
