### Signal values explode when filtering with bandpass and wiener in Python

I have a five second audio (speech with background noise), which I want to process first with bandpass filter and then with wiener filter to reduce noise. Audio is normalized between [-1, 1] and I ...

### Butterworth Filter Transfer Function

Butterworth Filter frequency response is given as: $$H_a(j\Omega)=\frac{1}{\sqrt{{1+\left(\frac{\Omega}{\Omega_c}\right)^{2N}}}}\quad \text{where N is the order of the filter}$$ and for the transfer ...

### Paper replication: Validating the proper way to pass .wav audio breathing data through a bandpass filter

I am working on trying to apply a low and high pass filter to an audio file that contains a set of exhalations over a microphone. The inhalations have been cut out of the file, and the exhalations are ...

### What is the $Q$ of successive Second-Order Sections of an $N$th-order Butterworth low-pass filter?

What if you had an $N$th-order Butterworth lowpass filter filter with -3 dB frequency of $\Omega_0$? $$\Big| H(j\Omega) \Big|^2 = \frac{1}{1 + \left(\frac{\Omega}{\Omega_0}\right)^{2N}}$$ The number ...

### narrow band filtering of a signal that is sampled at high frequency

I have a signal that is sampled at 2KHz. The frequency band of interest is from 1/60 Hz to 1 Hz, and I want the final signal to be downsampled to 10 Hz. What is the best way to do this? I read that ...

### Transfer functions for Scipy and Matlab's Butterworth filter don't seem to match theory

The squared transfer function for a Butterworth filter of order $n$ should be $$|H(f)|^2 = \frac{1}{1+\left(\frac{f}{f_c}\right)^{2n}}$$ where $f_c$ is the cut-off frequency. (Here's one of many ...

### Filter 3D volumetric image with a Butterworth filter in Python

I have been looking for a way to filter a 3D volumetric image in python with a Butterworth filter, but I haven't found any good solution. I have tried this: ...

### why does butterworth IIR filter for a square pulse show ripple on edges in time domain but not the same for sine wave

I am using butterworth filter for both square pulse and sine wave. In case of square pulse, butterworth produces some sharp ripple of edges of square pulse in time domain for varying butterworth order ...

### Difference between MATLAB zp2sos and python zpk2sos functions

I am trying to port some code from MATLAB to python. The goal is to use Butterworth filter (4th order, bandpass) API and convert it to second-order sections. I get the same output between MATLAB and ...

### LPF in the stage of IQ demodulator is it a analgor filter or digital filter?

I recently designed the LPF of the IQ demodulator using the Butterworth LPF refering to https://dspillustrations.com/pages/posts/misc/baseband-up-and-downconversion-and-iq-modulation.html. But I have ...

### Pre-Processing Wi-Fi Channel State Information (CSI) Data

I was successfully able to collect some CSI data using the existing tool(s) on GitHub (https://github.com/StevenMHernandez/ESP32-CSI-Tool). The CSI data is a pair of imaginary and real number which ...

### Creating a 4th order Butterworth filter R

I have sampled my data at 2000 Hz and want to generate a fourth order low-pass zero-lag filter with a cut-off frequency of 150 Hz. I have put the code below that I have created but I have the ...

### I am looking for an analytic description of a continuous-time Butteworth High-pass filter in the time domain (=impulse response)

having derived the Butterworth Lowpass Time domain response, I am now struggling to find a similar function for a Butterworth Highpass filter. I understand you need to replace s by 1/s. But this leads ...

### Butterworth filter's gain formula does not agree with R's signal package

I'm trying to calculate the Butterworth filter gain. If I use the formula mentioned on Wikipedia: $$G^2(\omega) = \frac{G_0^2} {1+\left(\frac{j\omega}{j\omega_c}\right)^{2n}}$$ I don't get a ...

### Why use both a high pass and a low pass filter in a Butterworth implementation for noise reduction?

I am a new to audio processing . I want to develop an application that reduces audio noise using a Butterworth filter. I found some existing code doing this, but I still do not understand the use of ...

### Offset after Butterworth bandpass filtering

guess I'm stuck with this filtering problem and I'm thinking it has something to do with my raw data but I'm not so sure. So the problem is the following, please refer to the figures below, basically, ...

### Third octave band zero-phase forwards-backwards Butterworth filter adds amplitude to complex signals?

Overall aim: to take a short signal (likely to be noisy with some tonal components) and filter it into third-octave bands (TOBs), apply frequency-dependent spectral adjustments, then recombine the ...
