"In this article I'll remove the software speaker grill and pull out the virtual chassis to take a closer look at the sonic possibilities of this "simple mono amplifier".

"Did you know that:

* The Rickenbacker was one of the first commercially available electric guitars in the early 1930s ?
* By 1945 the Fender company marketed amplifiers designed specifically for the electric guitar ?
* Audio effects designer Roger Mayer created the first distortion and wah pedals for guitarists in the 1960s ?
* In July 2009 developers Hermann Meyer and James Warden announced the release of Guitarix 0.05.0-1 ?

"Okay, so maybe Guitarix won't make quite the same historical impact as those other events, but its most recent release is definitely an event worth noting."
