wow. thanks for the new example configurations and the extensive
comments! very helpful.

the convolver itself is a bit of a marketing disaster, though. i mean,
uh, it just convolves. No fancy new features, such as UltraLowJitter, or
at least TrueMultiplyAndAdd (for purists, as opposed to FFT-based, for
that extra dash of depth and clarity). And TubeMode would be cool as
well. but one cannot have it all, i assume. ;)

in the reverb configs, you mention that you cut off the direct sound by
setting an offset, which will then make the convolutions suitable to use
in a classic "aux send" setup, so that the reverb return will be 100% wet.
but why do you remove the first 5 ms of the room response?
i seem to recall it is about control of low frequency energy, but i
forgot the details. are those 5ms a natural constant, a matter of taste,
or maybe a function of the room's rt60? pointers to TFM would be R with
great interest.
