What works

Guitar Rig seems to work fine most of the time, with multiples effects/presets.

Delay is not much different from Guitarix.

Jack Audio is needed as well.

What does not

There are two issues that can easily be fixed:

1. Missing VS C++ 2013

2. No audio if not using WineASIO

There's one issue that I did not try to fix:

3. If you try to configure ASIO inside Guitar Rig the app crash.


Solutions are quite simple:

1. Install vcrun2013 with winetricks.

2. Install/compile WineASIO for your distro. On Debian/Ubuntu you may use a pre-compiled from

3. None tried, does not affect usage of app.

What was not tested

I did not test all effects/presets.

Additional Comments

As long you install everything needed, it works as expected.

If using the Free version, with not so many effects available, Guitarix is probably a better alternative as it will work out of the box.
