Delay-Line and Signal Interpolation

It is often necessary for a delay line to vary in length. Consider, for example, simulating a sound ray as in Fig.2.8 when either the source or listener is moving. In this case, separate read and write pointers are normally used (as opposed to a shared read-write pointer in Fig.2.2). Additionally, for good quality audio, it is usually necessary to interpolate the delay-line length rather than ``jumping'' between integer numbers of samples. This is typically accomplished using an interpolating read, but interpolating writes are also used (e.g., for true Doppler simulation, as described in §5.9).
