Was hoping to have it out a few days ago, but I ended up doing a bit more work
on it than I expected.
This has fixes for the doppler shift that slipped into 1.4, better EFX
compliance, less memory use in the mixer (about 3MB less), a smaller output
buffer for less latency (if anyone has stuttering or skipping problems due to
it, please let me know!), a pkg-config file, the ability to override the lib
dir using LIB_INSTALL_DIR (eg. to use 'lib64' on x86-64 systems), and more.
Assuming all goes well and CPU use doesn't become much of an issue, expect to
see the high-pass and band-pass filters implemented for the next version. I
would've done it before the release, but I figured the changes were already
enough and I didn't want to increase the risk of introducing CPU usage
Also, if there's a portable, LGPL-compatible lib that can apply effects in
real-time (reverb, chorus, echo, etc), I may off-load the effects processing
to that instead of trying to (poorly) hand-code them. I had a look at
freeverb for doing the reverb effect with, but it seems its expected
parameters don't match up with what EFX uses. I'll continue looking to see
what I can do, but does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks for looking! Comments and critique welcome..
