cascade~

Cascaded series of biquad filters

Description

Use the cascade~ to filter an input signal using a series of biquad filters.

Examples

Use cascade~ with filtergraph~ in multi-filter mode to efficiently process a complex parametric filter

Arguments

None.

Attributes

Common Box Attributes

annotation [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in the Clue window when the user moves the mouse over the object.

background [int] (default: 0)

Adds or removes the object from the patcher's background layer. background 1 adds the object to the background layer, background 0 removes it. Objects in the background layer are shown behind all objects in the default foreground layer.

color [4 floats]

Sets the color for the object box outline.

fontface [int]

Sets the type style used by the object. The options are:

plain
bold
italic
bold italic

Possible values:

0 = 'regular'
1 = 'bold'
2 = 'italic'
3 = 'bold italic'

fontname [symbol]

Sets the object's font.

fontsize [float]

Sets the object's font size (in points).

Possible values:

'8'
'9'
'10'
'11'
'12'
'13'
'14'
'16'
'18'
'20'
'24'
'30'
'36'
'48'
'64'
'72'

hidden [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object is hidden when the patcher is locked.

hint [symbol]

Sets the text that will be displayed in as a pop-up hint when the user moves the mouse over the object in a locked patcher.

ignoreclick [int] (default: 0)

Toggles whether an object ignores mouse clicks in a locked patcher.

patching_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 100. 0.)

Sets the position and size of the object in the patcher window.

position [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's x and y position in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its size unchanged.

presentation [int] (default: 0)

Sets whether an object belongs to the patcher's presentation.

presentation_rect [4 floats] (default: 0. 0. 0. 0.)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in the patcher's presentation, leaving its patching position unchanged.

rect [4 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the x and y position and width and height of the object in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation).

size [2 floats]

g/s(set)

Sets the object's width and height in both patching and presentation modes (if the object belongs to its patcher's presentation), leaving its position unchanged.

textcolor [float]

Sets the color for the object's text in RGBA format.

textjustification [int]

Text Justification

Possible values:

0 = 'left'
1 = 'center'
2 = 'right'

varname [symbol]

Sets the patcher's scripting name, which can be used to address the object by name in pattr, scripting messages to thispatcher, and the js object.

Messages

list

Arguments

filter-coefficients [list]
In right inlet: The filter coefficients can be provided as a list in the left inlet. The coefficients should be in sets of five, each set corresponding to a second-order section or biquad. The first five coefficients in the list are used for the first second-order section in the series, the next five for the second, and so on.

dictionary

Arguments

dictionary-name [symbol]
The word dictionary , followed by a symbol that references a named filterdesign object dictionary (set via the name attribute), will cause the cascade~ object to use the dictionary values for filter coefficients.

clear

Resets all coefficients and sample-memory to 0.

bypass

Arguments

operational-flag [int]
The word bypass followed by a nonzero number will turn bypass mode on and cause the dry unfiltered signal to pass through to the object's outlet; followed by a 0 will output the filtered signal.

signal

In left inlet: Signal to be filtered. The signal is filtered by a series of two-pole two-zero (i.e. biquad) filters, often referred to as "second order sections".

zero

Arguments

operational-flag [int]
The word zero followed by a nonzero number will cause the filtered signal to be muted; followed by a 0 will output the filtered signal (this will not prevent the unfiltered signal from appearing at the outlet when bypass mode is turned on).

Output

signal

The filtered signal.
