Looking at Wikipedia article on Goertzel algorithm I thought I might be able to use it as a quick and dirty filter. I'm interested in looking at formants. Looking at the spectra of my specific test case, I'd want something from 10% of center to 1/3 octave but being> = 20db down an octave away.

Okay, so I need to make some plots that neither MathCAD nor excel can do easily, so I bit the bullet and installed Octave. After wrestling with it for a couple of days I have to say I am, so far, extremely underwhelmed. I can't seem to find any succint help references. The online manual has a good bit of info, but it's not well organized IMHO, and not at all easy to wade through. In g...

Hi, I'm writing an audio application and for the most part I've been using an octave spaced decimating filter bank and applying FFTs to each octave. For my purposes this works pretty well (guitar processing) however I'm getting artefacts due to spectral smearing when I'm trying to resolve a low G and A - 98Hz and 110Hz - now obviously I could increase my FFT window size, but I really do...

Hi dears, Good Morning! I am new in signal processing and I am trying to do a work in noise control of an electronic steering lock device (ESL). My aim is to calculate the loudness (Zwicker Method- ISO 532 B) of this device. To do so, first I need to obtain the 1/3 octave spectrum of a time signal that I measure with a microphone. The problem is I keep getting negative values in dB

Whats the rule of thumb for how far to detune the two outside filters for third octave bandwidth? Is the middle filter supposed to have a little less gain to flatten the passband out? Is the Q of all 3 filters the same? Do the skirts roll off at 18dB per octave? (I searched for 'triple tuned' but no hits, so I hope I dont get flamed for asking)

Hello, some advertisement: I released a new version of my delay estimation subroutine (Matlab / Octave). It finds the delay and scaling factor between two cyclic (or zero-padded) signals, and applies it to one signal in order to match the other. Download links are on [1] at the top of the page. The main algorithm is described in my blog entry [2] from 2007, which was rewritten a month ag...

I want to represent the audio spectrum of a signal. (I don't need to reproduce the signal, just represent it). The FFT gives linearly space bins, but I want to represent it as a log scale. I've read posts about constant Q transforms and/or using filters to capture each octave. The first is a bit above me (I've gone from paper to implementation before and its tough), and the secon

Hi! Ive been recently using FFT for Pitch Detection and I notice that, although the notes are correct (e.g. C, D#, etc.), there are a lot of notes that are in the wrong octave (e.g. E2 is categorized as E3, C3 is categorized as C4, always an octave up).
