FIR -- simple finite impulse response filter
quick syntax:FIR(outsk, insk, dur, AMP, ncoefficients, coefficients...)
CAPITALIZED parameters are pfield-enabled for table or dynamic control (see the maketable or makeconnection scorefile commands). Parameters after the [bracket] are optional and default to 0 unless otherwise noted.
p0 = output start time (seconds) p1 = input start time (seconds) p2 = duration (seconds) p3 = amplitude multiplier (relative multiplier of input signal) p4 = total number of filter-equation coefficients p5... the coefficients (up to 99 fir coefficients) p3 (amplitude) can receive updates. NOTE: mono input / mono output only
FIR creates a finite impulse response filter using the filter coefficients passed to the instrument. The filter is non-recursive (i.e. only past inputs are used in the equation), in the form:
(an-x are the filter coefficients, xn-x are the past inputs from the sample stream)
Usage NotesFIR can be used to design fairly complex filters, although the phase-shifting due to a long stream of past inputs is an inherent design problem with basic FIR filters. The trick is to find the right set of coefficients. There are a number of good web sites that will generate FIR coefficients given a frequency-graph type of specification.
