Convolver comes with a number of command line utilities that are used mainly
for testing, but may have wider application. They can be found in
They are not maintained quite as frequently as Convolver itself.
- runs successive optimum attenuation calculations with different partition
number values and so can be used determine the optimum number of partitions
for a particular filter.
- convolverCMD convolves a filter with a sound
file off line so you can test manually what effect your filter has on a known wav file,
- convolverPipe is
similar to convolverCMD but filters from stdin to stdout, so that it can be
used with SlimServer, for example.
- makeIR generates a wav file from a text
file specification. This can be used to generate impulse response files manually.
- Compares two wav files and outputs the difference to a third wav file.
- generate_dirac_delta <SamplesPerSec> <Channels> <Silence>
- will generate a Perfect Dirac Delta function wav file, sample rate SamplesPerSec, with Channels channels, and Silence trailing 0s.
The utilities provide fairly rudimentary diagnostics.
They need the .dll files in
C:\Program Files\Convolver\Convolver to be
in the current directory, or your path.
