Topic: foo_dsp_convolver (Read 27931 times) previous topic - next topic
0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.


Here's another convolver plugin: foo_dsp_convolver.

Official plugin (foo_convolve) adds small but noticeable gaps between songs if used in converter. "Don't reset DSP..." option solves this problem, but slows down conversion, that's why I wrote foo_dsp_convolver.
Also, it allows to use "Mix adjust" slider with linear-phase impulses, and supports more than 2 channels.

- minor fixes;
- added signal extrapolation to reduce a possibility of clicks during track change;
- recompiled with latest SDK (2018-10-11). Works with foobar2000 1.4.x; users of 1.3.x need to download and install MSVC redist (here).

Old versions are available here

Just out of curiosity, I noticed 3 different FFT methods in the source...

May I ask why thats so?  Speed testing?


Reply #2
Well...  FFmpeg works only with FFT size between 16 and 65536, ooura works everywhere but slowest of them, etc...
And just for fun. "Speed testing" is not implemented.

btw: I wonder why there's no access to fb2k internal FFT routines...
Because there may be no such thing I guess. Remove standard DSPs, decoders, vis and voila! − no FFTs left at all. Right?


Reply #4
iirc, FB2K uses modded versions of KISSFFT for FFT processing.

foobar2000 does use FFT for spectrograms & other visualisation.
Code: [Select]
    //! Retrieves spectrum for audio data at specified offset (see get_absolute_time()), with specified FFT size.

    virtual bool get_spectrum_absolute(audio_chunk & p_chunk,double p_offset,unsigned p_fft_size) = 0;

[font= "Courier New"]virtual void visualisation_stream_v3::chunk_to_spectrum(audio_chunk const & chunk, audio_chunk & spectrum, double centerOffset) = 0;[/font]
Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.

That doesn't matter much, but... it isn't clear: does it return full FFT results or ampllitude only (ie sqrt(re*re + im*im))?

For this input chunk:
[font= "Courier New"]{m_data={...} m_srate=44100 m_nch=1 m_setup=4 m_samples=512}[/font]
I got this output chunk:
[font= "Courier New"]{m_data={...} m_srate=44100 m_nch=1 m_setup=4 m_samples=256}[/font]
So I assume the latter.

This convolver does not seem to work at all. I use filters generated by Audiolense and they work fine with the old convolver.

With this convolver I only get some sound in right channel, although only left channel active in peak meter.

I have tried different sample rates: 44.1k, 48k and 96.
Also different filter lengths: 16k, 64k and 132k taps.
Same result - only some sound in right channel.

Thanks for the report. Try ver. 0.3.5.

BTW, are you sure that your speakers correctly connected?


Reply #11
0.3.5 fixed my problems with the single channel. My setup was connected wrong as you suspected.

A big thanks for your work on this plugin. The most exciting feature for me is the multi-channel support, which the original convolver lacks. Together with the matrix mixer plugin I can finally get to play around with the active crossover filters that Audiolense XO can make.

Thank you for your time and effort towards improving the convolver plugin, I use the original convolver ALL the time

I was wondering in regards to your plugin, apart from the speed increase from FFTW, is there any actual *quality* gain (measurable in some way, noise floor perhaps)?  I noticed that with the FFTW files in the foobar2000 directory, the program is using ~150mb ram more  I tried running both the 'patient' mode FFTW file and the 'exhaustive' one (I generated both) though I did not see much if any difference (a few mb maybe?).  This behavior happens even if the plugin is not in use in the DSP, which seems odd to me but then again I probably don't know enough about it

If there is actually a quality difference (accuracy difference), is there any way you could implement your 'techniques' in a way that would allow for stereo convolution too? is available however I have a feeling your methods of processing are probably superior.

Note: I got the idea about FFTW being of better quality/accuracy from their website (probably not surprising)

Thank you for your time

I doubt it. Maybe FFTW is a bit more accurate but the 'noise floor' is very low anyway.

I noticed that with the FFTW files in the foobar2000 directory, the program is using ~150mb ram more

Oops. I'll try to reduce the amount of memory reserved for FFTW.

The current version in this thread says 0.3.5, however it has been updated to 0.3.6 which has the memory issues fixed  (thank you lvqcl)


Reply #15
0.3.6 on foobar 1.1.2b2:

Failed to load DLL: foo_dsp_convolver.dll
Reason: Invalid access to memory location

0.3.5 was working fine


Reply #16
Works here perfectly. fb2k v1.1.2 beta 2, windows7 x64.

Pls tell me details about this problem.


Reply #17
Not much to tell: Win7 U 32b, with fftw-wisdom.dat in foobar folder. I downloaded your component, d&d in foobar and on start that error pops. Previous version was working fine, as said
If you want me to run some debug tests, PM me

[edit]: On exit foobar crashes:

Unfortunately, I can't send reports from affected PC, but they look similar with "Unable to identify crash location!"

I cannot find the source of this problem, but

1. try foo_dsp_convolver 0.3.7 (changes between 0.3.6 and 0.3.7 are not related with your problem but who knows...)
2. try to delete foo_dsp_downmix.dll and foo_dsp_fsurround.dll (they use libfftw3f-3.dll too) and see what happens.
3. try to delete fftw-wisdom.dat.

I should have tried above.
I thought deleting fft library used by pro_optimizer components, but as it was the same file as your component is using, I didn't do it. Then I noticed foo_musicdns was using libfftw3-3.dll and knowing that I had problem with this component in past I disable it, but that didn't change anything

New version, didn't change issue, but deleting "fftw-wisdom.dat" solved the case, so there is some problem. I made new fftw-wisdom file, but problem stays

If your CPU is Core2 or at least has SSE2 support you can also try fftw-wisdom from this archive


Reply #21
will the generated wisdom file be any different from the one generated from the other archive? (more optimized)


Reply #22
From FFTW manual: "It would be perfectly possible to export wisdom from a program running on one processor and import it into a program running on another processor. Doing so, however, would mean that the second program would use plans optimized for the first processor, instead of the one it is running on... The more the underlying hardware and software changes between the creation of wisdom and its use, the greater grows the risk of sub-optimal plans."

So it is better to generate wisdom on a target computer.

what about fftw-wisdom_24.dat?
