Why is it that in older textbooks the DFT or FFT is defined as having scaling of (1/N) for direct FFT whereas in newer ones it doesn't? If we take the DFT of say 1,1,1,1 the answer is 4 but surely an answer of 1 makes more sense as it is the average value. of 4 ones. I know people say - "Oh we can scale it later", but it doesn't make mathematical sense. The other point is that the

I am trying a simple example using frequency sampling. Therefore I have N=16 weights. W=[w0 w1.....w15] and I make then as follows W=[1 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 ] as magnitude and the phase is -k*pi*(n-1)/N where k is from 0 to N/2 giving a frequency sampling complex vector of H=[h0 h1 h2 ....h15] Now according to textbooks I have to have conjugate symmetry but exactly how does t...

## Is fixed point arithmetic important anymore

inDO many people still do DSP in fixed point or are the processors mostly floating point and the DSP designer no longer needs to work in fixed point?

We all know that if you have an even function you have only cosine terms an= d an odd function only sine. When the function is neither even nor odd you = get both, or do you? This suddenly struck me. Suppose you have=20 f(x)=3Dsin(x) - this is odd since f(-x) =3D -f(x) f(x)=3Dsin(x)+1 is neither even nor odd. Now f(-x) ne -f(x) But this is just a dc level shift. Could you not therefo...

I just learned how to convert an audioclip from a 33.3 rpm vinyl record to 78 rpm, here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/audition/converting-33-recording-to-78-how/td-p/9448709?page=1 What I need is similar but probably harder. I am developing a web application based on a segment from a 2013 TV program. Only the first seconds are relevant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MF04X2aLBw T...

Forgive the ramble but I don't have to problem pinned down completely: I'm curious about the mathematical relationship between the harmonic series= and equal temperament. I'd like to write a program that quantizes glissa= ndos into the harmonic series similar to birdsong but, of course, by defini= tion, you can't transition between equal tempered intervals with the harmon= ic series. =20...

I ran across a problem in a DSP book that got me to thinking (the best kind= of problem). The author suggests that we can illustrate aliasing by sampl= ing an audio signal at a high frequency and then replacing samples with zer= oes to get a lower effective sampling frequency. For example, if we sample= at fs1 =3D 32 kHz and then keep every M =3D 4th sample (replacing the othe= r samples ...
