Re: Master volume difference between 44.1kz and 96khz

Thanks for the long story.
Ok, the long term fix would be to bypass ffmpeg whenever possible and rely more on fftw3, so that it doesn't break compatibility with zita-convolver?
And this would in turn requires fftw3 to have a Thread Safe Planner as per https://github.com/FFTW/fftw3/issues/16
-> according to the release notes the implementation in fftw 3.3.5 was broken and this is apparently fixed in 3.3.6 (current version in Arch.)
Did I get it correctly?

Anyway, Guitarix works fine for me with the changes you've done: the volume is now consistent between 44.1 and 96k (at least for simple presets - I didn't compare all modules).
But users running at 44.1kz & 48K will probably be less than happy that their their presets have a high chance of being too loud.
This would probably require a word of warning if you plan a new release in the current state...

Cheers,
