There are plenty of software-based guitar solutions for guitarists but how many of them are open source? Very little, to be quite frank. Enter OpenStomp, an open source FX pedal solution for developers and players. The model above, the Coyote-1, can hook up to Windows so parameters can be edited on the fly. Sounds a lot like a MIDI-based solution that users can dive further into.
It may be open source but it still can’t turn you into Eddie Van Halen if you just plain suck. Remember, practice makes mediocre.
