And what about the partitions? what are they for?
I think the with the partions you can decrease the delay but I didn't use it.
And you mention the possibility of adding a "stereo to 5.1" effect in the chain. What for?
All files support 7.1. If you use stereo music only the left and right speaker is used. If you want to use also the center and rear speakers than a upmix can help.
(btw, why Program Files and not Program Files X86, if the VST is in the X86 folder?)
You can use every folder you want but in the txt files you have to link to the wave files. I think everybody have the Program Files folder. That is why I choosed it. If you want you can change the folder.
I also think you should say people that they absolutely need to put a limiter in the chain after the Convolver BEFORE playing around with it, because the slider to set the gain is VERY tricky and can jump from -11 to +37 easily, and it is NOT a pleasant experience...
And, in the pdf you say to choose the text file, but when I open the convolver it is set to search for a wave file. As far as I see, if I choose the wave file it sets input and output channels to 16 and the panning is all left. Not good. If I chose the text file (config file) it sets input at 8 and output at 2 and all is fine.
The convolver can only handle stereo wave files correct. For files with more than two channels the convolver needs the txt file which have the instructions for the convolver how to handle all the channels in the wave file.
