trfilter — Streaming partial track filtering.


The trfilter opcode takes an input containg a TRACKS pv streaming signal (as generated, for instance by partials) and filters it using an amplitude response curve stored in a function table. The function table can have any size (no restriction to powers-of-two). The table lookup is done by linear-interpolation. It is possible to create time-varying filter curves by updating the amlitude response table with a table-writing opcode.


fsig trfilter fin, kamnt, ifn


fsig -- output pv stream in TRACKS format

fin -- input pv stream in TRACKS format

kamnt -- amount of filtering (0-1)

ifn -- function table number. This will contain an amplitude response curve, from 0 Hz to the Nyquist (table indexes 0 to N). Any size is allowed. Larger tables will provide a smoother amplitude response curve. Table reading uses linear interpolation.


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