Hmm here again I have to disagree.  Some restoration works in
'realtime' in as far as it works as a process inserted on the audio
signal chain and can be non-destructive in as far as it never modifies
the original recordings as a result, only the output.  CEDAR is the
king of this hill of course with their standalone units, but the
WaveArts AU plugins I use also work like this, work great in
Ardour(<20mS latency on them in fact), and to be honest I can't think
of a reason off hand that they couldn't be implemented in LADSPA or
LV2 format.
