seems i did :) i somehow missed the headphone processor, and only saw 
the "command-line audio tools" part. i'm not interested in those because 
of the problems of pipes in real-time setups.

but the headphone processor is very interesting. if it's not too much 
work, i'd love to see this thing packaged. given you don't have a gui, 
this shouldn't be too hard.

the effect is very nice on the demo, but then it's all synthetic sounds 
- i would like to play with it myself and apply it to some recorded 
material to be able to judge the sound in some more detail. it does seem 
to reduce the in-head-localization effect, but it also spreads out the 
signal in a rather extreme way - i wonder how it will sound with complex 
  signals such orchestral music.

can it be made to work in real-time? if so, i can see the word LADSPA 
written all over it :-D (which btw would save you a lot of packaging 
work and all of the tedious gui stuff).

it might also be interesting for the jamin developers to take a look at 

please do post the source somewhere. is it documented so that the 
mathematically-challenged can understand what exactly is being done, or 
could you post some links to relevant material ?



(btw, the linux-audio-developers list is also a very appropriate forum 
for this. if you do get around to package your software, please announce 
it there as well, so that technical discussions can take place on the 
dev list.)
