1.General 2nd Order


The General (2nd-Order) block gives access to a wide variety of 2nd-order (biquad)filter algorithms.The coefficient calculations happen in the controller.

  • The available filter types are:
  • Parametric
  • Shelving
  • General High-Pass
  • General Low-Pass
  • General Band-Pass
  • General Band-Stop
  • Butterworth Low-Pass / High-Pass
  • Bessel Low-Pass / High-Pass
  • Tone Control
  • 1st-Order Low-Pass / High-Pass
  • All-pass
  • Peaking
  • Notch
  • Chebyshev Low-Pass / High-Pass

To open the filter control window, click on the icon button:

Select the desired filter type from the drop-down combo-box list. The filter controls and the icon button image will change to reflect the selected filter type.




This block's algorithms use biquad filter designs (Direct Form II) based on Robert Bristow-Johnson's work in this field.

H(z)={b_0 + b_1 z^-1 + b_2 z^-2}/{1 + a_1 z^-1 + a_2 z^-2}

common variables:

  • omega_0 = {2 pi f_0}/{F_s}
  • gainLinear = 10^{gain/20}



Note that the b0 and b2 coefficients for the high pass filter below are inverted from what is stored in RAM. The correct equations for b0, b1, and b2 for a high pass filter are as follows:
b0 = -(1 + cos(ω0)) * gainLinear / 2
b1 = -(1 + cos(ω0)) * gainLinear
b2 = -(1 + cos(ω0)) * gainLinear / 2


Note that the minus signs on b0 and b2 values are erroneous for the Butterworth HP and Bessel HP. They should not be included. See http://ez.analog.com/message/4769



For all of the above filters, the coefficients are divided by a0, normalizing them and making a0 = 1 so that only 5 coefficients must be stored. In the actual implementation on the DSP, when the coefficients are stored in parameter RAM, a1 and a2 need to be inverted. This is done automatically, in software, before the parameters are written to memory.

By default, the Q is shown with the value adjusted (from the classical EE definition) so that a boost of N dB followed by a cut of N dB for identical Q and f0/Fs results in a precisely flat unity gain filter or “wire”. This is equal to A*Q, where A = 10^(dBgain/40).

The “Classic EQ” version of Q can optionally be shown by clicking the small circular button next to the Q control.

2.General 2nd Order (HW-Slew)


The General (2nd-Order) filter is a variant of a second order bi-quad filter which enables a smooth transition of the filter parameters when filter parameters are changed, this is done by slewing from the current filter parameters(coefficients) to the one being set.

The slew type and slew time can be set by the user in GUI as shown below. Right click on the General 2nd Order filter module

On click on the Custom, the “Set Slew Mode” form will open as shown below

The algorithm supports three slew types

 1. Linear Slew
 2. RC Slew
 3. Exponential Slew

This block gives access to a wide variety of 2nd-order (biquad)filter algorithms. he available filter types are:

  • Parametric
  • Shelving
  • General High-Pass
  • General Low-Pass
  • General Band-Pass
  • General Band-Stop
  • Butterworth Low-Pass / High-Pass
  • Bessel Low-Pass / High-Pass
  • Tone Control
  • IIR Coefficient (direct coefficient entry)
  • 1st-Order Low-Pass / High-Pass
  • All-pass
  • Peaking
  • Notch
  • Chebyshev Low-Pass / High-Pass
