Filter - A real-time variable audio filter Windows utility
Filter CAD - Computer aided filter design! FilterCAD was designed to be easy to use as well as being a very power filter design tool.
FILTRY v 1.10 - Nearly everytime you construct a new piece of equipment you have to design some filter. It's exactly the same for me! Now there are several ways to solve this problem: to look in catalogues and handbooks, to ask a colleague, etc. The quickest way, however, is to say your computer: "I need an active low-pass filter with no more than -0.32 dB up to 3.25 kHz and with more than 22 dB attenuation at 4.06 kHz.". "And should it be Tchebychev or Butterworth ?", it replies. "Butterworth!", you answer. The schematic diagram then appears on the screen instantaneously. It would be nice, wouldn't it ? But it IS nice! This program is in your hands. Its name is FILTRY (plural for 'filter' in Czech). It's a kind of "autonavigation program" and it needs no manual. Just type the word 'filtry' and then let the program guide you. You can print out the schematic diagram - hit <PtrScr>. You can also store the picture on the disk and print out it sometime later - by using the program "ZOBRAZ" (it means 'represent').
Filter Lab 1.0.39 - FilterLab is an innovative software tool that simplifies active filter design. Available at no cost, the Fil-terLab active filter software design tool provides full schematic diagrams of the filter circuit with component values and displays the frequency response. FilterLab allows the design of low-pass filters up to an 8th order filter with Chebyshev, Bessel or Butterworth responses from frequencies of 0.1 Hz to 10 MHz. Users can select a flat passband or sharp transition from passband to stopband. Options, such as minimum ripple factor, sharp transition and linear phase delay, are available. Once the filter response has been identi-fied, FilterLab generates the frequency response and the circuit. For maxi-mum design flexibility, changes in capacitor values can be implemented to fit the demands of the application. FilterLab will recalculate all values to meet the desired response, allowing real-world values to be substituted or changed as part of the design process. FilterLab also generates a spice model of the designed filter. Extraction of this model will allow time domain analysis in spice simulations, streamlining the design process. Further consideration is given to designs used in conjunction with an ana-log-to-digital converter. A suggested filter can be generated by simply input-ting the bit resolution and sample rate via the Anti-Aliasing Wizard. This eliminates erroneous signals folded back into the digital data due to the aliasing effect.

Loudspeaker Modeling Program LMP v1.25 - LMP is a computer program designed to model 2-way loudspeaker systems. The resulting frequency and phase response curves predict the on-axis sound pressure level produced by the interaction of your choice of crossover, drivers and enclosure design. LMP assumes that the impedance curve of the drivers in the modeled system have been made reasonably flat by way of Zobel and/or impedance correcting networks. LMP also assumes that the drivers modeled have a flat frequency response from the low frequency roll-off point to the high frequency roll- off point. Quality drivers on the market today meet this criteria. LMP assumes that the user has had some experience with loudspeaker systems and crossover networks and is familiar with the terminology commonly used to describe the various parameters involved.

MicFFT v1.2 - MicFFT is a program that samples data from a sound card or addressable analog-to-digital (ADC) port, and plots out the spectral features of the sampled waveform. The program utilizes a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) algorithm to transform the sampled data (in the time domain) to the frequency domain. The program gets 256 Pulse Code Modulated (PCM-see below) samples from the ADC at a defined sampling rate, and then plots the transformed data. MicFFT continuously loops between sampling and plotting. Thus, the program acts somewhat like a realtime spectrum analyzer, and on fast machines with fast sound cards, is capable of impressive performance. MicFFT can be likened to spectrum analyzers found on some audio equalizers, and can provide detailed information on the spectral components and relative intensities of continuous waveforms.

The program allows to transform bitmap (.BMP) pictures using the fast fourier transform. The resulting pictures will be displayed as according to the mathematic formula [Grayscale Intensity]=LOG10(1+ABS(Z)) where Z denotes the complex number after transforming the picture. There is an option which allow the transforms to be shifted to the center of the window (centered lower frequencies). You can also filter the pictures using lowpass, highpass, bandpass, bandstop, butterworth lowpass and highpass filters. In addition there is a "freehand" filter which allow you to zero out certain frequencies in the transformed picture. Finally the manipulated complex pictures can be transformed back again. The program requires Windows 3.X to run, and preferably with a 256 colour driver installed (although it will work perfectly with standard VGA). The transformed pictures can be saved to disk or pasted into other applications by using the clipboard.
