Hi Philipp,

   Thanks for the comments! I'll revise it and send a v4.
   Here is my reply to some parts of your question.

You are right about the case. I'll try to figure out a nicer way, including
for the different sample-rate.

I was also wondering this question but I couldn't find it.
And obviously your algorithm is better :)

You are right about the idea and the inference.
