filtercoeff~

Signal-rate filter coefficient generator

Description

The filtercoeff~ object is a signal-rate filter coefficient calculator for the biquad~ object. It calculates the filter coefficients from three higher-level parameters: frequency, amplitude and resonance (Q) or slope (S). Its internal calculations are based on those of the filtergraph~ object.

Examples

The filtercoeff~ object lets you send sample-accurate coefficients to biquad~

Arguments

default-filter-type [symbol]

Optional

A symbol argument may be used to set the default filter type (highpass, lowpass, etc...).

resampling-factor [int]

Optional

An optional second argument can be used to specify a resampling factor.

Messages

int

Arguments

filter-parameters [int]
Integer values are converted to float .

In 1st inlet: Sets the center or cutoff frequency parameter for the filter and causes output.

In 2nd inlet: Sets the gain parameter for the filter and causes output.

In 3rd inlet: Sets the Q (resonance) or S (slope) parameter for the filter and causes output. (note that the term slope is only used for the third parameter of shelving filters, and is roughly equivalent to resonance).

float

Arguments

filter-parameters [float]
In 1st inlet: Sets the center or cutoff frequency parameter for the filter and causes output.

In 2nd inlet: Sets the gain parameter for the filter and causes output.

In 3rd inlet: Sets the Q (resonance) or S (slope) parameter for the filter and causes output. (note that the term slope is only used for the third parameter of shelving filters, and is roughly equivalent to resonance)

list

Arguments

center-frequency [float]
initial-gain [float]
Q [float]
A list of up to 3 floats will specify the center-frequency, the gain, and the Q-factor respectively. A signal connected to any inlet where these parameters would normally be received will override any input from a list and the effects of these parameters are completely dependent on what type of filter is chosen.

bandpass

Arguments

center-frequency [float]
Q [float]
In left inlet: The word bandpass sets the filter type to bandpass mode. The frequency response of the filter is based on two parameters: center frequency and Q (resonance). The gain parameter is set to unity gain (1.0).

bandstop

Arguments

center-frequency [float]
Q [float]
In left inlet: The word bandstop sets the filter type to bandstop mode. The frequency response of the filter is based on two parameters: center frequency and Q (resonance). The gain parameter is set to unity gain (1.0).

allpass

Arguments

center-frequency [float]
Q [float]
In left inlet: The word allpass sets the filter type to allpass mode. The frequency response of the filter is based on two parameters: center/cutoff frequency and Q (resonance). The gain parameter is set to unity gain (1.0). An allpass filter is designed to modify the phase response, leaving a flat amplitude response

highpass

Arguments

center-frequency [float]
Q [float]
In left inlet: The word highpass sets the filter type to highpass mode. The frequency response of the filter is based on two parameters: cf (cutoff frequency) and Q (resonance). The gain parameter is set to unity gain (1.0).

highshelf

Arguments
