### Beginner question on aperiodic samples and DFT behavior

I have a strongly aperiodic signal and I get weird artifacts after running a fft, using a low-pass filter, and then doing an inverse fft. I believe the artifacts are due to the way the signal is ...

### MATLAB : How to filter a data signal

I have a data signal (column vector) with N values taken over at specific sample rate (dx) at a fixed frequency. After taking the Fourrier transform of this signal and representing it in the Fourier ...

### ITU-R 2k filter implementation

How to generate the coefficients of an itu-r 2k filter when all I know is my 0 dB point is at 2 kHz and my maximum of 6 dB is at 7 kHz

### Advantage of using nonideal filter in purely digital application [duplicate]

Say I'd like to bandpass filter a signal with corner frequencies 1 kHz and 2 kHz (i.e., passes signals between 1 kHz and 2 kHz and suppresses other frequencies) using software like MATLAB. Intuition ...

### Removing frequency using FFT

So if I were to have an $n$ length sample of a given sample rate and were to run it through an FFT, resulting in $n$ complex elements. How would I obtain the frequency bins, such that if I know the ...

### How to improve an FFT AM demodulator for NOAA APT satellite imagery?

My question involves proper FFT Technique for AM demodulation, in the special case where the modulation rate exceeds the carrier frequency. This question has a specific hobbyist application, the ...

### Why bother impluse invariance, bilinear transform?

Now that we can operate in the frequency domain by way of FFT. We can implement ideal lowpass, highpass and bandpass digital filters. then why there many textbooks talk about designing digital ...

### Amplifying part of a signal

If I want to amplify a certain frequency in a digital signal, can I just take the FFT, increase the real part of the value for the frequency I want (leaving the imaginary part alone), and then take ...

### Simple FFT filtering vs. e.g. butterworth filtering

I am currently working on functional connectivity analysis of EEG, and need to bandpass filter my data into different frequency bands (Delta, Theta, Alpha and Beta). An important thing is that the ...

### How to interpret results of Fourier transform by using Python

Connected with this topic , I would like to have some clarifications about the Fourier Transform and the Python tools that make it. Having my data set whose plot is showed in the above link, my array ...

### Easy Filter with FFT and Convolution

I'am pretty new to this topic so i dont have much experience with DSP. I want to filter(highpass) a WAVE file, i have already programmed the FFT, and now want to filter the FFT vector via convolution (...

### A little bit better than zeroing bins in order to filter

The topic of zeroing frequency bins before IFFT has been discussed here : Why is it a bad idea to filter by zeroing out FFT bins? It was very helpful to understand why it is a bad idea. What do you ...

### Removing values from FFT result same as filtering?

I don't quite understand why the textbooks say it is impossible to implement an ideal low pass filter. If I was to take the FFT of a discrete signal x[n], with Matlab's fft function I'd be returned ...
