Exactly the same here (not using the LV2 but jconvolver).

Another example. Although the system is officially still
'experimental', Italian radio is now routinely using the
Eigenmic for live broadcasts of concerts. Which probably
means they trust the mic and the software used to process
its signals in real time. This now uses zita-convolver,
doing 32 * 16 simultaneuous convolutions on a Macbook,
the same which at the same time also runs their DAW, and
various other software such as a panoramic video display
which has the moving spot mic directions generated by the
convolutions superimposed on it. They now have several
hundreds of hours using the system, and the convolution
processor has never failed (other parts have). And yes,
the processsor does use multiple partition sizes and

A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
