What is the dsp callback?  This is new to me, too.

I had a different approach when it comes to building static arrays
that depend on block size.  I used three variables in the struct,
x->n, x->array_pointer, and x->is_new_or_resized

Then, example use in perform routine:

if (x->n != n)
if (x->is_new_or_resized)
  if (x->array_pointer != NULL)
  malloc(x->array_pointer, n);

So, you can see the problem.  It would be useful to know another way.
