BiquadSparseHPFract32
Overview
Sparse Biquad cascade filters with most of the coefficients as bypass
Discussion
This module implements a high precison fract32 version of custom biquad filter that is capable of realizing many different filter types along with additional raw coefficients. The module performs internal smoothing allowing the filters to be updated without introducing clicks. In all cases, the module implements an underlying cascade second order filters. First order filters are realized by setting some of the second order coefficients to zero.
The behavior of the cascade filters are controlled by the filterType arrary. The variable, filterType is an integer in the range from 0 to 21 inclusive.
After specifying filterType, adjust the filter parameters by setting the fields, gain, freq, and Q. Some filter parameters are not applicable to all filter types. If the filter type is RawCoeffs then the coefficients from rawCoeffs array used and all other controls ignored. The variable, freq controls the center frequency of the filter, gain determines the boost or cut in dB, and Q determines how sharp the filter is. Low Q values lead to broad filters and high Q values lead to narrow filters.
The following table discusses the various filter types and which variables are active in each case.
filterType=0, Simple pass through with unity gain.
filterType=1, Linear gain. [gain].
filterType=2, 1st order Butterworth low pass filter. [freq].
filterType=3, 2nd order Butterworth low pass filter. [freq].
filterType=4, 1st order Butterworth high pass filter. [freq].
filterType=5, 2nd order Butterworth high pass filter. [freq].
filterType=6, 1st order allpass filter. [freq].
filterType=7, 2nd order allpass filter. [freq, Q].
filterType=8, 2nd order low shelf. It allows you to vary the gain of the low frequencies. The high frequencies have a gain of 1.0. [freq, gain].
filterType=9, 2nd order low shelf with Q. It allows you to vary the gain of the low frequencies. The high frequencies have a gain of 1.0. [freq, gain, Q].
filterType=10, 2nd order high shelf. It allows you to vary the gain of the high frequencies. The low frequencies have a gain of 1.0. [freq, gain].
filterType=11, 2nd order high shelf with Q. It allows you to vary the gain of the high frequencies. The low frequencies have a gain of 1.0. [freq, gain, Q].
filterType=12, 2nd order peaking filter. It has unity gain except around the specified frequency. By varying gain, you can get a peak or a notch in the frequency band. [freq, gain, Q].
filterType=13, 2nd order notch filter. It has unity gain except around the specified frequency. At the specified frequency, the filter has a true notch with -inf dB gain. [freq, Q].
filterType=14, 2nd order bandpass filter. It has unity gain at the specified frequency and falls off in both directions. The bandwidth of the filter is determined by Q. [freq, Q].
filterType=15, 1st order Bessel low pass filter. [freq].
filterType=16, 1st order Bessel low pass filter. [freq].
filterType=17, 1st order asymmetrical low shelf. [freq, gain].
filterType=18, 1st order asymmetrical high shelf. [freq, gain].
filterType=19, 1st order symmetrical low shelf. [freq, gain].
filterType=20, 1st order symmetrical high shelf. [freq, gain].
filterType=21, 2nd order Butterworth low pass filter with variable Q. [freq, Q].
filterType=22, 2nd order Butterworth high pass filter with variable Q. [freq, Q].
filterType=23, raw coefficients from rawCoeffs array.
The hidden variable .bulkParamsUpdate can be used to control sofCoeffs calculation after all parameters are updated. This is useful when changing all four parameters, filterType, freq, gain and Q, simultaneously from host, to avoid intermediate coefficient transitions. Set this variable before writing filter parameters and then clear this after all filter parameters are updated.
