### How do I implement cross-correlation to prove two audio files are similar?

I have to do cross correlation of two audio file to prove they are similar. I have taken the FFT of the two audio files and have their power spectrum values in separate arrays. How should I proceed ...

### Frequency-domain zero padding - special treatment of X[N/2]

Suppose we wish to interpolate a periodic signal with an even number of samples (e.g. N=8) by zero-padding in the frequency domain. Let the DFT X=[A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H] ...

### FFT of size not a power of 2

My question is regarding the input size of a signal which is not a power of 2 and we have to take the fft of it. Some solutions say that suppose if we want to take the fft of 1800 we should zero pad ...

### How to choose a windowing function when performing a Chirp $\mathcal Z$-transform?

I've got some data sampled at 32 Hz. The only interesting stuff is happening between about 0-8 Hz and I've got to do real time batch processing and detect events with a delay of no more than a second. ...

### Zero Padding in FFT

whats is the effect of pading zeroes to a sequence in FFT? for eg: x[n]=[2 3 4 5] corresponds to X[K]=[14 -2+2i -2 -2-2i] while x[n]=[2 3 4 5 0 0 0 0] corresponds to X[K]=[14 0.58-9.65i -2+2i -3.414+...

### What happens when N increases in N-point DFT [duplicate]

I am curious about DFT, and I wrote a simple MATLAB code to test what happens when $N$ increases. I took a rectangular signal with length $L=15$, an then found th DFT of 16, 32 and 64 points. I looked ...

### disadvantages of FFT, it can not extract enough frequencies without enough samples

Let's say sampling rate is $Fs = 44\mathtt{kHz}$, now I have $N = 2048$ samples, then I can get $N/2 + 1 = 1025$ frequencies. I'm confused by Matlab's FFT documentation that says the frequencies are ...

### The frequency response function (FRF) fails to detect the antiresonance of a system

I am trying to identify a vibrational systems by computing the frequency response function (FRF) of the system when a chirp signal is applied to its input. After comparing the FRF computed and the ...

### Is there any problem with my FFT method?

I am trying to analysis a system by Fourier Transform. my system has 3 dominant modes. (1,0.05) (0.51,0.01),(0.46,0.01) the pairs are defined as (freq,damping_ratio) I've got those result with ...
