Hi all! I'm writing again about this issue, and am attaching a link to =
a sample MP3 file from setBfree. There is a problem with the sound. =
The Rotary speaker sounds as if both rotors were small fan-type baffles =
in front of the speakers. There's almost no drum rotor at all, just =
stationary tone, and the horn rotor sounds a bit small with mostly =
straight sound. =20

http://www.sendspace.com/file/3o7fyp

The demo file begins with rotors off, then goes to slow, then fast, etc. =
There is a slight glitch in the recording, and the pitch of the =
recording itself is wrong for another reason, neither of which is =
setBfree's fault.

I've tried the default settings, the default.cfg file that came with the =
package with the options set to read it, uncommented the whirl =
parameters as they were, and modifying some of them, but can't get much =
satisfaction. I didn't specify the zitaconvolver option in the make =
process, but the libzitaconvolver is there. I didn't supply any IR =
files yet, as I didn't think the convolver was in play, although the =
status at the top of the setBfree screen did mention IR I believe. =
Would the problem have anything to do with my system being 64-bit? Or =
did I make some other mistake in the install process? It definitely =
doesn't sound like the supplied demo. If more info is needed, please =
let me know. I'm not extremely experienced in making and installing, =
but I do try to follow instructions. Thanks for your help.

Kevin
