poltocar~ Reference

Signal Polar to Cartesian coordinate conversion

poltocar~

Description

poltocar~ will take any given signal as a polar coordinate and output the cartesian conversion of that signal.

Examples

poltocar~ converts amplitude/phase pairs into the Cartesian pairs that fftout~ uses

Arguments

None.

signal

In left inlet: The magnitude (amplitude) of the frequency bin to be converted into a cartesian (real/imaginary) signal pair.

In right inlet: The phase of the frequency bin to be converted into a cartesian (real/imaginary) signal pair.

Output

signal

Out left outlet: The real part of a frequency domain signal suitable for input into an ifft~ or fftout~ object.

Out right outlet: The imaginary part of a frequency domain signal suitable for input into an ifft~ or fftout~ object.
