I'm accepting patches to IR if anyone cares to implement the features
now seemingly made possible by LV2 so as to avoid any "kludges". I'm
sorry that I had to violate(?) your LV2 specs in order to be able to
produce a working plugin - one that was actually usable, back in
January 2011 and ever since, by actual audio engineers using Ardour.
I'd just like to note that the "inherent requirements" such a
convolving plugin poses, that you are now addressing with convoLV2
(maximum block length to be known in advance; power-of-2 buffer size),
have been raised by myself as questions and requests for features on
the LV2 mailing list sometime in early 2011, after considerable
frustration I had with LV2 while implementing IR. I'm quite happy that
LV2 is finally getting there, but I'm afraid that I have lost all
appetite for the sight of any LV2 specs so it is very unlikely that I
will be implementing any un-kludging, spec-un-violating changes
