7.4 System limitations

There are many bugs in Marsyas (far too many to list here!), but there are a few issues which are more fundamental. We list these issues here, along with workarounds.

7.4.1 Stereo vs. mono in a spectrum

Due to the way that observations behave in Marsyas, in some cases it is impossible to differentiate between a stereo signal and a mono signal which is twice as long. In particular, there is currently no direct way to tell apart a stereo pair of spectrums from a mono spectrum with twice the number of bins.

In these cases, we recommend that you use a Parallel Composite: split the stereo signal into separate mono dataflows (using Parallel), then treat each mono signal individually.
