       calfjackhost - JACK wrapper for Calf plugins


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


       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.


       --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

              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
        * rotaryspeaker (not a faithful emulation, not even close)

       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

               calfjackhost "monosynth:Fat Bass"

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

               calfjackhost ! reverb !

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