Re: Dragonfly Room Reverb - Testers needed

Beta release 1.9.7 is available. The biggest change is that the first knob is now "Size" instead of "Oversample", which had a variety of issues.

Re: which song is coming out of your speakers right now?

Olafur Arnalds makes some beautiful ambient music with a combination of acoustics and electronics: https://www.npr.org/2018/07/19/63012638 ... sk-concert

Re: Dragonfly Room Reverb - Testers needed

Beta release 1.9.5 is hot off the press. Dragonfly Room's Output LPF previously only applied to the late output, now it applies to both early and late. Also, the following parameters have been exposed to the DAW (They aren't visible in the GUI, as they are considered more advanced features, and I d...

Beta release 1.9.4 adds three new dials to Dragonfly Room: Input LPF, Output LPF, and Boost Band (frequency bandwidth of the bass boost feature).

Whoa, this is great news! As somebody who uses MacOS and Linux, I've been hoping that Drum Gizmo would eventually support both.

I'll try to carve out some time to build the Mac version and test it.

Re: Dragonfly Room Reverb - Testers needed

Sigh... These plugins are having a crisis of identity. Some people report that their favorite room preset is the "clear room" of Dragonfly Hall, and other people say that they really like making a hall sound with the Dragonfly Room algorithm. I named them based on my perception of their ut...

Re: Dragonfly Room Reverb - Testers needed

And by "later" I mean I just tested it (Linux VST in Reaper). :D CPU is back to the same levels as in 1.1.4, yay! Drawing of the graph is fast too. Nice! Yes I noticed that the late reflections of Room are significantly quieter. It didn't bother me, but if others are mentioning it, it mig...

Re: Wolf Spectrum - Free spectrogram plugin (LV2/VST/Jack)

As for kissfft vs. Project Nayuki's FFT I just tried switching to kissfft and can confirm that it is significantly faster than Nayuki FFT. I didn't profile it, but it seems like it is around 10x faster. Edit: I'm probably exaggerating about 10x, but my spectrogram indeed renderers noticeably faster.

Re: Dragonfly Room Reverb - Testers needed

Anyway I just conversed with Michael by private message, and he said he found some optimizations for the code which should further help with CPU usage. It might be worth waiting for his next update before investigating this aspect further. Confirmed, to make a long story short the makefiles used to...

Re: Dragonfly Room Reverb - Testers needed

Thanks everybody for testing and reporting your results. I made a slight change that I hope will bring CPU usage closer to what it was like in the 1.1.x releases: https://github.com/michaelwillis/dragonfly-reverb/releases/tag/1.9.2-beta I had made some changes to the way the early and late algorithm...
