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)
