pvsblur — Average the amp/freq time functions of each analysis channel for a specified time.


Average the amp/freq time functions of each analysis channel for a specified time (truncated to number of frames). As a side-effect the input pvoc stream will be delayed by that amount.


fsig pvsblur fsigin, kblurtime, imaxdel


fsig -- output pv stream

fsigin -- input pv stream.

kblurtime -- time in secs during which windows will be averaged .

imaxdel -- maximum delay time, used for allocating memory used in the averaging operation.

This opcode will blur a pvstream by smoothing the amplitude and frequency time functions (a type of low-pass filtering); the amount of blur will depend on the length of the averaging period, larger blurtimes will result in a more pronounced effect.

[Warning] Warning

It is unsafe to use the same f-variable for both input and output of pvs opcodes. Using the same one might lead to undefined behavior on some opcodes. Use a different one on the left and right sides of the opcode.


Here is an example of the use of the pvsblur opcode. It uses the file pvsblur.csd.
