Program info

You are looking for a real-time sound (guitar/voice) processor? You need one with very low I/O latency? And to contain excellent quality effects (REAL effects - not just some simple time delay effects like echo, chorus, flanger)? And that is easy to use, and small for download? And that is very affordable? Well, you've come to the right place!!!!!

What does Guitar FX Box do?

Just plug your guitar into the sound card input, start Guitar FX BOX and your guitar will sing and scream. You can apply a wide range of high quality effects to guitar, voice and other inputs. This sound processing program is acting just like a good collection of guitar effects pedals. You can use several of them at the same time, even all if you need so.

Guitar FX BOX does REALLY real-time DSP. Signal is sampled from sound card input, processed and then sent to the output with VERY LOW LATENCY. Unlike many other "real-time" audio programs, I/O delay with Guitar FX BOX is extremely low, virtually undetectable! This is achieved using DirectSound (or WDM streaming) for fast access to the hardware (sound card) and fast DSP algorithms optimized for real-time processing. Through DirectSound, latency is about 20ms with most sound cards, or even less. When WDM streaming driver is used, latency can go as low as 5ms! Nevertheless, exact total i/o latency still depends on hardware/drivers.

Guitar FX BOX is made from the ground up to be easy to use. With user interface intuitive and friendly, this is ultimate application for real-time effects processing. Any program option is just one or two mouse clicks away. Everything is real-time, every slider move results in instant change of produced sound.

Effects settings can be stored to presets for later use. Presets can be easily recalled by single key press, or by MIDI devices like foot controllers.

The "BOX" currently contains these high quality effects:

Overdrive/Distortion, Amp&Speaker cabinet simulator, Echo, Reverb, Chorus, Wah-wah (AutoWah & EnvelopeWah), Pitch shifter, Tremolo, I/O EQ, Compression, Phaser and Volume Swell. Also included are handy guitar tuner and metronome.

System requirements:

  • 16-bit Sound card with drivers supporting WDM streaming (win 98/Me/2k/XP/Vista/7) or DirectSound (win9x/Me) or ASIO (all systems).
  • Minimum recommended CPU: Pentium IV 2GHz or equivalent with SSE suport.
  • Operating system: Windows 9x/Me/2k/XP/Vista/7.
