I agree that always doing sample accurate interpollation is a bit over the top
most use cases. The granularity should somehow be a decision of the application
using the controller.
At the volume level, however, I believe it should be possible to request
an equal amount of control points as you have samples so that you can later
optimize the multiplication (in volume case) with some straightforward sse/mmx
paralel multiplies (as the latest patch seems to do). I don't think the volume
element should try to split buffers or mess with the controller too much.
How the controller then generates those points would depend on its
configuration (it could duplicate the same value N times or it could do a
linear interpollation between the calculated control points or...).
It can't imagine that rendering a controller curve for N samples should be
such an expensive operation. Even less so when the algorithm is allowed to
take shortcuts based on the configured granularity. I might be wrong, though...
