An Alternative Approach for the Convolution in Time-Domain: The Taches-Algorithm

Document Thumbnail

We present an alternative temporal approach for convolution, providing a new algorithm, called the taches-algorithm. Based on interferences between the successive delayed and amplified output signals associated respectively with the impulses constituting the input signal, the taches-algorithm can give access immediately to the new output sample and have a low latency response even without using vector-based optimisation of the calculation. With the taches-algorithm it seems easy to change (even in real-time) the impulse response while running the calculation, simply by updating the impulse response to use it for next samples, a task rather difficult to achieve using FFT convolution. Real-time audio demonstrations using notably Pure Data and simple explanations of the taches-algorithm will be given.
