### What sampling frequency should I use if Nyquist is not available?

HINT When you sample at below the Nyquist rate, aliasing happens. That means frequencies higher than half the sampling rate get folded back down to below half the sampling rate. Have a read about ...

### What sampling frequency should I use if Nyquist is not available?

As correctly stated in Peter K.'s answer, this question is about aliasing. Since you can't sample at a rate that is sufficiently high to avoid aliasing - i.e., $f_s>50\textrm{ kHz}$ - you have to ...

### Digital Distortion effect algorithm

Thanks to the plot in Olli Niemitalo's answer I got convinced that the formula given in the book has a sign error. The non-linearity used for fuzz or distortion is always some type of smoothed ...

### what's the pass band ripple and stop band attenuation of a digital filter?

I hope the plot below helps answer your question. Typically I have seen the "passband ripple" and "stopband attenuation" expressed in dB as shown in the picture translating the ...

### Confusion implementing Quantization in MATLAB?

Why i am getting same quantized signal in xq2 and xq3, Very poor choice of test signal. A 10 Hz cosine wave sampled at 100 Hz has only 3 different values that keep repeating (in flipped in sign and ...

### Trying to understand the general scheme of how real-time audio signal processing works on embedded system

Buffer Management: In most embedded systems, buffer management is typically a combination of hardware and software functionalities. For a microcontroller like ARM Cortex, the Direct Memory Access (...

### Linearizing digital-analog converters

Another typical approach, that independently of my other answer works, is predistortion, for example with the look-up table mentioned by robert, or with a correction polynomial. If you can really ...

### Why is cos(n/6) aperiodic?

The periodicity of a signal holds if we can show $x(n)=x(n+N)$, otherwise, the signal is nonperiodic. Simply start with  \begin{align} x(n+N) &= \cos( \frac{n}{6} + \frac{N}{6}) \\ &= \cos(\...

### DAC to Analog Filter to ADC

You wouldn't normally do that because it isn't worth the cost (hardware.) FIR filters get computationally very expensive if you need sharp cutoffs. Digital IIR filters that provide the same cutoff ...

### difference between GMSK (Gaussian Minimum shift keying) and GFSK (Gaussain frequency shift keying)

With GMSK, the frequency modulation index is 0.5. With GFSK, the frequency modulation index is larger than 0.5 (the signaling tones are farther apart). The receiving techniques used for GMSK as an FSK ...

### Comparison using cross correlation

A stereo audio file will have 2 channels. You will need to select each channel separately and do cross-correlation. The Xcorr function understands only real or complex vectors as input but you are ...

### Bandwidth and Bit rate

Bandwidth is of course occupied by the signal itself. The modulation design of the signal determines the bandwidth. That's why pulse shaping techniques are adopted by many different kind of ...
