Rakarrack: An Open Source Alternative to Guitar Rig

Filed under
Software

In the last post, I blogged about setting up a guitar amp/effect processor in Arch Linux. In the comments, some readers mentioned an open source alternative to Guitar Rig named Rakarrack. Since we are all advocates and lovers of FOSS software I thought that it deserves a separate post and our dear readers would get a kick out of using this open source effect processing software.

Rakarrack is probably one the best open source guitar effect projects out there and certainly one of the most active ones. It comes with copious amount of presets, from Satriani and Hendrix to Rock Band ones.
