Hi Julien,

thanks for the info. How many reverb can you process at runtime
with jconv? is it constant-time independantly of the reverb impulse
response length? and what computer do you have? I made sverb to
have a realtime reverb on my pentium 200 MHz host. I previously tried
to make an FFT-based stuff but it was not convincing, not
realtime. (Maybe I should have tried jconv or brutefir or whatever...)

Maybe I'll take a look at those parametric eq after all.

LADSPA. Well, no. That's not the way I like it, sorry. :-)
But sure, I will give a look at some effects in there, maybe
the eq I dream of is there.

Hey I completely forgot to say that songs is a little tool to record
and mix audio files (a mini-Ardour, very very mini let's say),
requiring GTK+ and talking to OSS (yes, I know, we are in ALSA
since... long, but my computer was working fine with OSS and I am
very lazy, so I was using a 2.2 kernel up to the destruction of
the computer; maybe the next computer).
