Jean: The 6711 is actually a floating point processor so it can do the 
floating point without emulation. I am working on the 6416 which does 
not have it. Working with fixed point may still speed things up possibly.

Muhammad: It seems like you might have to start getting into linear 
assembly to speed things up. If you are serious to getting speex working 
on TI DSP we should work together on the routines.
