Rakarrack is a richly featured multi-effects processor emulating a guitar effects pedalboard.  Effects include compressor, noise gate,  expander, shuffle, ring, synthfilter, varyband, mutromojo, looper, arpie, graphic equalizer, parametric equalizer, flanger, dual flange, chorus, echo  with reverse playback, musical delay, reverb, digital phaser, analogic  phaser, wah-wah, alien-wah, harmonizer, shifter, sequence, sustainer,  shelfboost, vocoder, coil crafter, echoverse, convolotron, stompbox,  exciter and four flexible distortion modules including sub-octave modulation  and dirty octave up.  Most of the effects engine is built from modules  found in the excellent software synthesizer ZynAddSubFX.  Presets and  user interface are optimized for guitar, but Rakarrack processes signals  in stereo while it does not apply internal band-limiting filtering,  and thus is well suited to all musical instruments and vocals.   Rakarrack is designed for Linux distributions with Jack Audio Connection Kit.


These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-'). A summary of options is included below.
