Beta release of rkr lv2, Rakarrack effects ports


Spencer Jackson has just announced a new release of rkr lv2, his port of Rakarrack effects to the LV2 plugin format.

With each effect, the individual effect presets have also been ported. Work is also under way on porting the preset banks to Carla rack presets. This will allow the user to load any of the presets from Rakarrack and insert them as a single plugin in Ardour or other LV2 hosts.

  • Reverb
  • Parametric EQ
  • Cabinet Emulation
  • AutoPan/Stereo Expander
