Hello everyone need some help

I’m looking for a complesFIR filter from Audiolense software to load into Roon DSP.

I’m building a 3-way active system with room correction. And would like to insert this filter to test my Mac mini Roon server if it can handle the processing required for a complex system.

I’m not at all going to listen to it but want to test my Mac mini to see if can process the filter.
Would someone be so kind to send me a file that I can run this test.
If you have a better idea I’d be interested
Thanks
Bruno

Thanks9so as demanding as it gets on CPU)

Here's a Roon DSP filter for the 3 way demo measurement, with 131072 taps, and 96 KHz sampling . I'm sure your Mac mini can handle it. Give it a try.

Roon would only accept the .wav file and the M1 processor went from ~6% CPU to worst case number 24%

weird the zip file loads up for me in Roon (under the convolution tab)... Maybe Roon on Mac and PC behave a bit differently?

Another way to assess how much CPU headroom you have is to look it up in Roon (see pic below), if the multiplier is below 1 you might run into issues.
BTW the filter I sent you is a pretty taxing one (a worst case scenario type thing).

I think the filter is loaded and working properly 6 paths, 61k taps...55.1x

can you explain Under one.. Ive never seen that.. I was under the impression that the greater the load the higher the multiple... 55.1x is worse than 35.7x in your case? Correct understanding?
thanks Omid

The higher, the number the better. The Mac mini is clearly better than a cheap NUC unit LOL!
With 55x, you have plenty of CPU power to spare.
