Ok, thanks for the info. My old configs are IIR filters only and they appear to be identical for both 48 and 96kHz sampling rate.

Once again, please please please, do not modify manually that file and DSP version (not sure how many please we can use...)
The IIR filter (saved as biquads) were calculated AND saved in a complete different sample rate. they will NOT be compatible. The FIR taps inside are NOT the same, the address are not the same... You are really going against the use of the product.

I'm afraid that if you're going against our help, not 100% sure what else we can do and you're on your own. It does happen that we engineered 100% of these platform from hardware to firmware and do know a "little" as to the issue of doing such modification as you just did.. Please listen to us. Thanks for your understanding!

Ok, ok, I've measured my speakers after I made that change and what you say is apparently true - the crossover frequency have shifted one octave lower. I'm recreating all of my presets manually as I don't have another option and this is really frustrating. So once again, please please please, implement some sort of conversion tool so that people can reuse their existing presets.

unfortunately, it's not technically possible to do what you're asking for I'm afraid.. It's a complete different DSP structure between the 48k version and 96k version. These are just 2 complete different Software, 2 complete different configurations so it will not be possible.

May I recommend that you check the user manual for more details?

Please stop the whining.

I don't really understand the issue here. I have numerous miniSHARC configuration files created in both the 48khz and 96khz plugin's. Even with numerous EQ's/xovers/delays/etc, manually creating a copy from 48->96 (or vice-versa) only takes 5-10 minutes.
Unless you have dozens of unique configurations to convert, I can't see this being a major issue.

Guys, I'm not talking about converting the FIR taps are whatever precompiled stuff there is. I can't believe it is impossible to parse the settings that are stored as plain text and then recalculate the biquads for the correct sample rate. Here's part of one of my config files:
<setting version="v1.8">
  <timestamp>0</timestamp>
  <dspversion>67</dspversion>
  <label name="Input3" text="Input%20L"/>
  <label name="Input4" text="Input%20R"/>
  <label name="Output1" text="Sub"/>
  <label name="Output3" text="LMidBass"/>
  <label name="Output4" text="LHigh"/>
  <label name="Output7" text="RMidBass"/>
  <label name="Output8" text="RHigh"/>
  <filter name="PEQ_7_10" addr="16937">
    <freq>2530</freq>
    <q>5</q>
    <boost>-3</boost>
    <type>PK</type>
  </filter>
  <filter name="BPF_7_1" addr="17272">
    <freq>1000</freq>
    <q>0</q>
    <boost>0</boost>
    <type>BWLPF_1</type>
  </filter>
  <filter name="BPF_8_5" addr="17332">
    <freq>5000</freq>
    <q>0</q>
    <boost>0</boost>
    <type>LRHPF_2</type>
  </filter>
  <link>PEQ_3:PEQ_4,PEQ_7:PEQ_11,BPF_7:BPF_11,BPF_8:BPF_12,</link>
</setting>

Settings like input/output labels, links between channels, IIR filter types, frequency, gain, filter Q, etc. are all stored in plain text. How come it is not possible to parse and apply the links/labels, and recalculate the biquads?!?

Please stop the whining.

Hi Dave,

Thanks for the kind reply :)

Having to manually copy settings each time is generally considered to be really poor user experience. And if that is ok for some users (like yourself), for others it might be not. So what I'm trying to do is to suggest a way for the UX to be improved just a little bit. This is something really trivial and could have been already implemented for the time spent explaining how impossible it is.

Cheers!

Why are you still talking about this?
If you'd like to request they produce a utility and/or update the plugin software, simply place a thread in the Suggestion Box area above. devteam will see it and prioritize it appropriately.

Dave.
