### How do you interpret the sign (positive, negative or zero) of the phase spectrum?

How do you interpret the sign (positive, negative or zero) of the phase spectrum of: 1)a digital filter (the phase spectrum of its frequency response aka phase response of the filter). 2)a signal in ...

### Time delay vs phase ramp, group delay and phase delay

I need to apply a phase ramp in the frequency domain to a signal in order to apply a delay to it in the time/digital domain. However, I am confused by the fact that if I convert the phase ramp into ...

### Wideband phase vs time delay beamforming correction

I am studying a 1D beamforming for wide-band signals, so that applying only phase weights to each individual antenna would steer the beam for the central frequency. For other frequencies the steering ...

### How to reduce clicking in an audio signal with seek jumps?

I'm working on a vst plugin where a delay is used, the seek position of the delay sometimes changes gradually sometimes abruptly, when sudden changes occur sometimes a clicking sound is produced. Some ...

### How does function c2d in MATLAB manage fractional delay?

the function c2d allows to convert a continuous laplace transfer function to a discrete z-transform transfer function. The base method is the Zero Order Holder. In example: ...

### How to solve a time delay from an FIR filter?

I have designed a FIR high-pass filter $\{h_n\}$ with length 257 to filter a signal $\{f_n\}$ with length 512. To convolve signal with filter in time, I performed an FFT with length 768, padding ...

### Why can the number of zeros be no more than the number of delay elements in a signal flow network?

Let $N$ be the signal graph representation network of the system function (in rationale form) of a discrete-time LTI system. For a network $N$ with no loops, the impulse response is no longer than ...

### How to use cross-correlation to verify speech data and determine delay

I have been experimenting with cross-correlation function to verify the presence of speech in a recorded file wrt a source file. I tried the following in Matlab: <...

### GCC-PHAT always peaks at zero when estimating delay offset

My question is that when I used gcc-phat to estimate delay between two audio signals, it always returns zero offset. However normal cross correlation Xcorr gives a good result. I don't know the reason....

### How can I find the delay between two signals? [duplicate]

I am using NARX in Matlab. Is there any method to find the delay between input and output signals? My aim is to decrease memory length by finding the delay. TIA.

### Interpreting the cross correlation results

I am new to this forum. I am just trying to understand how to calculate delay (in terms of samples) between two signals using cross-correlation function. I wrote a small Matlab code in order to ...

### Is this the correct solution for finding the samples of phase delay at a given frequency of an IIR BiQuad filter?

I want to calculate the number of samples of phase delay at a given frequency of an IIR BiQuad Filter. I believe I have solved this, but I would like to confirm I have done it correctly. My work is as ...

### Delays and alignment issues: how to compute the an equalizer delay?

For example, if an equalizer model experiences a delay due to its processing, the equalizer may misinterpret the boundaries between the equalized symbols it outputs and, therefore, return meaningless ...

### Frequency-specific Delay?

So an equalizer manipulates the gain of certain frequencies by use of a variety of filters, as we all know. But is there a way to manipulate delay in a frequency-specific manner? A parametric ...

### Measurement delay versus control delay

For a typical conventional control loop (no delay, measurement transfer function is 1) the closed-loop transfer function is $$H(s) = \frac{G_{comp}G_{process}}{1+G_{comp}G_{process}}$$ With an ...

### Quantifying the frequency shift of a delay with LP filtered feedback

I am working at a Karplus-Strong sound synthesis technique where an excitation impulse is subjected to a delay with feedback and a one pole LP filter in the feedback line. The process is simply y[0]=(...

### Is a notch filter for 50 Hz without delay possible?

I am processing an EEG signal (2 kHz sampling frequency) from hardware and the built-in filter doesn't work as intended. FIR gives a delay, and IIR is unstable. The signal of interest is from 4&...

### How is time or sampling rate accounted for in this model?

A basic model of coupled strings (eg. piano) is provided here as: The principle is that it has two identical string simulations each formed by a delay line and LPF. The outputs of these are summed at ...
