skf — Sallen-Key filter.


Skf is an digital implementation of a linear Sallen-Key analogue filter, which is a second-order filter with either lowpass or highpass responses.


asig skf asig, xcf, xK[, ihp, istor]


ihp -- if non-zero, select highpass response. Defaults to 0 (lowpass).

istor --initial disposition of internal data space. Since filtering incorporates a feedback loop of previous output, the initial status of the storage space used is significant. A zero value will clear the space; a non-zero value will allow previous information to remain. The default value is 0.


asig -- input

xcf -- filter cutoff frequency (a- or k-rate)

xK -- Sallen-Key opamp gain, in the range 1 to 3. At 3 the filter self-oscillates. K=1.586 gives a Butterworth response, higher values are equivalent to Chebyshev responses (with peaking). At K=1 the filter is critically damped and the poles are real-valued.


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