NAME

       calfjackhost - JACK wrapper for Calf plugins

SYNOPSIS

       calfjackhost [options] plugin[:preset] [!] ...

DESCRIPTION

       Calf JACK host application provides a way to use Calf plugins directly,
       without need for any external host application. It also offers best GUI
       functionality  (using  GTK+  2  widget set), as there is no restrictive
       plugin standard getting in a way between GUI and audio processing code.

OPTIONS

       --client name
              sets  JACK  client  name  (the  name  calfjackhost   uses   when
              registering in JACK)

       --input name
              name prefix for audio inputs

       --output name
              name prefix for audio outputs

       --midi name
              name prefix for MIDI inputs

       --connect-midi client:port
              automatically connect all MIDI ports to client:port

       --connect-midi !n
              automatically connect all MIDI ports to system:midi_capture_n

       --version
              prints a version string (calf some.version.number)

       --help prints a help text

       An  exclamation  mark  (!)  in  place  of  plugin  name means automatic
       connection. If "!" is placed before the first plugin  name,  the  first
       plugin    has    its   inputs   connected   to   system:capture_1   and
       system:capture_2. If it's placed between plugin  names,  those  plugins
       are  connected  together  (first plugin's output is connected to second
       plugin's input). If it's placed after last plugin name,  that  plugin's
       audio  outputs are connected to system:playback_1 and system:playback_2
       (first output pair).

       Plugin names (should be self-explanatory):
        * flanger
        * filter
        * reverb
        * vintagedelay
        * monosynth
        * multichorus (chorus effect with multiple voices)
        * compressor (Thor Harald Johansen's dynamic compressor)
        * organ (polyphonic synthesizer emulating  tonewheel  or  solid  state
       organs)
        * rotaryspeaker (not a faithful emulation, not even close)

BUGS

       Please send bug reports to <wdev@foltman.com>.

EXAMPLES

       To  start  monosynth  with  automatic  connection to first system audio
       output, and no automatic MIDI connection, use:

               calfjackhost monosynth !

       (! means "connect", last "!" means "connect to output")

       Other examples:

               calfjackhost monosynth ! vintagedelay ! flanger ! -M 2

       (runs monosynth into vintagedelay and vintagedelay into  flanger,  then
       to    output;    connects    monosynth's    MIDI    input   to   JACK's
       system:midi_capture_2)

               calfjackhost "monosynth:Fat Bass"

       (runs monosynth with  a  Fat  Bass  preset  into  monosynth,  does  not
       autoconnect)

               calfjackhost ! reverb !

       (takes signal from system:capture_1 and _2, puts it through reverb, and
       then sends to system:playback_1 and _2)
