Hi,

I'm trying to use a library called: Real time octave analysis.

The original source code do your calculations using a frequency vector F that have only 18 frequency numbers inside it.

Now I want to expand this code to make it possible to do your calculations with a new vector F that have 29 frequency numbers inside it.

This 29 frequency numbers correspond to 20Hz until 20.000Hz using one third octave band.

I did some little modifications inside the function oct3bank(x), but there are some lines of code that I can't understand very well and I need some help to adapt theses lines to my propouse.

Could you help me? I think that my problems will be in the lines:

Line 51 - % MODIFIED FOR LOOP VALUES: OK?

Line 58 - % HOW TO CHANGE THIS VALUES [15 14 13] TO MATCH WITH THE NEW VECTOR F?

Line 80 - % HOW TO PLOT ALL 29 NEW BANDS?

Thanks, Nycholas Maia

function [p,f] = oct3bank(x)

% OCT3BANK Simple one-third-octave filter bank.

% OCT3BANK(X) plots one-third-octave power spectra of signal vector X.

% Implementation based on ANSI S1.11-1986 Order-3 filters.

% Sampling frequency Fs = 44100 Hz. Restricted one-third-octave-band

% range (from 100 Hz to 5000 Hz). RMS power is computed in each band

% and expressed in dB with 1 as reference level.

%

% [P,F] = OCT3BANK(X) returns two length-18 row-vectors with

% the RMS power (in dB) in P and the corresponding preferred labeling

% frequencies (ANSI S1.6-1984) in F.

Hi Nycholas,

I won't comment on the specifics of this function, which was written quite a while ago, but I thought I'd provide a pointer to the reference documentation page of the octaveFilter object in case it could help you or others.

Within that page you'll find a reference to the method getANSICenterFrequencies, e.g. to be used as follows to get the desired vector of frequencies that you mention:

allANSIFrequencies = getANSICenterFrequencies(octaveFilter('Bandwidth','1/3 octave'));

freqSubset = allANSIFrequencies(8:end-1);

Further down on that same page you'll find other relevant code snippets.

For example, to design an array of 1/3 octave filters centered around those frequencies:

for i = 1:length(freqSubset)

octaveFilterBank{i} = octaveFilter(freqSubset(i),'FilterOrder',12);

end

More code is provided in the same page for plotting the whole filterbank (see also this other question of yours on MATLAB Answers) or for estimating the energy of a given signal in the desired bands.

Thanks,

Gabriele.
