### What causes the mismatch between a calculated sine wave and a measured sine wave?

Note: this question has been edited to refer to a sample that does not use dithering. I recently asked my first question on here, about what I saw in an uncompressed audio file written out as integers....

### Understanding sine wave generation in Python with linspace

I was trying to sample a 12.8 MHz sine wave (78.125 ns) signal at every 160us (micro seconds). Since 160us is multiple of base period 78.125ns(x2048) i expected to get a sample of fixed amplitude but ...

### Synthesizing harmonic tones with Karplus Strong

I'm building my own MIDI synth. I have to create a decent sounding tone for every note on the piano keyboard (A-1 through C7, or MIDI 21 through 21+88=109) I've been using a basic ring resonator, ...

### Generating a high SNR sinusoide with lut on a DSP

I'm generating a sinus by using a lut method on a DSPic33f. My sample rate is 48 kHz, so I saved 12000 of the first value (unsigned int, 16 bits) and use trigonometric formulas to calculate the other ...

### Best window before FFT ? (for a signal consisting of 2 tones used for phase measurement)

I am doing phase measurments by transmitting and receiving tones (100 kHz and 16 kHz simultaneously). I am transmitting the tones and receiving them, applying Blackman Harris window and doing FFT for ...

### Bandlimited PWM

Trying to figure out how to synthesize a Bandlimited PWM in my audio code in C. I have already figured out a bandlimited pulse wave but I can't really figure out how to translate that to PWM. I have ...

### reducing MIPS in detecting tones

Currently our software is detecting tones using FFT and checking if there is only a single peak in frequency spectrum. Our software needs to know what kind of input it is before taking action. So we ...

### Different kinds of beeps and tones

I have heard many different types of beeps, chimes, and other tones. Audacity allows me to generate simple waveforms like sine waves and square waves, as well as DTMF tones. But I want to generate ...

### How to detect and remove ringback-tone and ivrs voice etc from the beginning of an audio call recording

In an audio recording (say a telephone conv. b/w two people), how would I programatically detect and remove the dial-tone at the beginning of a call using python. Ex : As you can see the first 15 ...

### How sine wave is generated using lookup tables

From this document I am quoting P2,L7 So what is the incremental distance if we are using a 64 element look-up table instead of a sine function based on 2π? incremental distance = 2k*64/48k = 8/3. ...

### How do I use the Lazzarini-Timoney DSVF as a sine generator?

I've tested out the Chamberlin digital state variable filter (DSVF) as a sine generator as per this well-known approach. At $f_0=686\text{Hz}$ tone and $f_s=48000\text{Hz}$ it sounds fine and the FFT ...
