Product Announcement – Indie developer, Nikolas Konstantakopoulos with Granny’s Audio of Athens, Greece  has released Geff 1.0, his new virtual guitar rack for OS X. Geff is a standalone audio effects application to use with your guitar, like you would a collection of stompboxes. It includes a variety of effects from the following categories, including Drive, Delay Lines, Filtering, Dynamics, Time Modulators, Amplitude Modulators, Reverb and more. Add as many effects and re-arrange them as you like.

Geff is separated to three components, Header or Input component, Middle or Effects, and the Footer or Output component. As their names suggest, the Input component manages the audio input, the Effects create and includes the used effects, and the output manages the audio output. In addition, Geff has the ability to map your MIDI controller to almost any of its parameters, very easy. Geff’s offers many useful features, including:

Header / Input:

  • Stereo Input supported
  • Change input channel on the fly
  • 3 band input equalizer

Effects:

  • 39 effects to choose from (see bellow for the full list)
  • Add as many effects as needed
  • Any effect type can be created multiple times (e.g. having 3 “Vanilla Overdrive” effects)
  • Rearrange or delete effects with a simple click
  • Every effect can be temporary bypassed
  • Every effect has a minimized view

Footer / Output:

  • 3 band output equalizer
  • One click fast output mute – This is as a precaution for any loud noise from stacking many distortions or useing to much feedback
  • Output audio level
  • Record our audio

Mapping – The mapping of a MIDI controller to Geff’s controls is very easy and fast:

  1. Toggle the MIDI mapping ON (indicated by the flashing icon);
  2. Hover your mouse over the Geff’s control you want to map;
  3. Move the MIDI controller you want to assign to that Geff’s control;
  4. Repeat for any other mappings you want;
  5. Done!
