Keep in mind that for narrowband/low complexity, this only represents
8000 64-bit additions per second. You can easily emulate that with
32-bit operations without adding anything significant to the total
complexity. If you really want to, it's probably possible to either
modify the algorithm or slightly decrease the precision, which will lead
to lower quality, especially for weak signals.
