Hi Guys (and girls?)
The last couple of weeks I have been messing around with different kind of software for digital room correction/EQ. After quite a few measurings etc. I've got a descent FIR filter I would like to use. So far I have been using it with foobar and convolver, and it works just perfect :yay2:

My problem is, that I would like to use the FIR-filter with a VST-host, by doing so I should be able to run all sounds through the FIR filter. Unfortunately I'm experiencing quite a high delay when using convolver with a VST-host

So far my configuration is as following:
EMU 0404 soundcard -> all sound is being sent to ASIO in
Console (VST-host) -> picks up the ASIO-in signal
Convolver - processes the FIR filter (131072 taps stereo filter in 44100 hz)
Console -> forward the sound to the ouput

From this link I found the following information concerning the delay associated with the use of FIR-filters:
(links removed due to restrictions)
given a FIR filter which has N taps, the delay is: (N - 1) / (2 * Fs), where Fs is the sampling frequency

If this information is correct, the 1.5 s delay is just a result of my pretty huge FIR filter. I just wonder, cause in foobar with convolver I haven't noticed this delay at all, and I felt pretty sure that it should be possible to process a FIR filter in (near)real-time.. But I might be wrong?

Anyone who can confirm if a fir filter can be processed in real-time or not? And perhaps know a solution:daydream:

Thanks a lot!

(I hope I have placed the topic in the right category)
