UAna objects

UAna


  • Unit Analyzer base class

Base class from which all unit analyzers (UAnae) inherit; UAnae (note plural form) can be interconnected via => (standard chuck operator) or via =^ (upchuck operator), specify the the types of and when data is passed between UAnae and UGens. When .upchuck() is invoked on a given UAna, the UAna-chain (UAnae connected via =^) is traversed backwards from the upchucked UAna, and analysis is performed at each UAna along the chain; the updated analysis results are stored in UAnaBlobs.

extends UGen

  • UAnaBlob .upchuck() initiate analysis at the UAna returns result.

[object]:UAnaBlob


  • Unit Analyzer blob for contain of data 

This object contains results associated with UAna analysis. There is a UAnaBlob associated with every UAna. As a UAna is upchucked, the result is stored in the UAnaBlob’s floating point vector and/or complex vector. The intended interpretation of the results depends on the specific UAna.

  • float .fval(int index) get blob's float value at index
  • complex .cval(int index) get blob's complex value at index
  • float[] .fvals() get blob's float array
  • complex[] .cvals() get blob's complex array
  • time .when() get the time when blob was last upchucked

[object]: Windowing


  • Helper class for generating transform windows

This class contains static methods for generating common transform windows for use with FFT/IFFT. The windows are returned in a static array associated with the Windowing class (note: do not use the returned array for anything other than reading/setting windows in FFT/IFFT).

  • float[] .rectangle(int length) generate a rectangular window
  • float[] .triangle(int length) generate a triangular (or Barlett) window
  • float[] .hann(int length) generate a Hann window
  • float[] .hamming(int length) generate a Hamming window
  • float[] .blackmanHarris(int length) generate a blackmanHarris window

[uana]: FFT Fast Fourier Transform


This object contains results associated with UAna analysis. There is a UAnaBlob associated with every UAna. As a UAna is upchucked, the result is stored in the UAnaBlob’s floating point vector and/or complex vector. The intended interpretation of the results depends on the specific UAna. This UAna computes the Fast Fourier Transform on incoming audio samples, and outputs the result via its UAnaBlob as both the complex spectrum and the magnitude spectrum. A buffering mechanism maintains the previous FFTsize # of samples, allowing FFT’s to be taken at any point in time, on demand (via .upchuck() or by upchucking a downstream UAna; The window size (along with an arbitry window shape) is controlled via the .window method. The hop size is complete dynamic, and is throttled by how time is advanced.

extends UAna

  • .size ( float, READ/WRITE ) get/set the FFT size
  • .window() ( float[], READ/WRITE ) get/set the transform window/size (also see AAA Windowing)
  • .windowSize ( int, READ only ) get the current window size
  • .transform ( float[], WRITE only ) manually take FFT (as opposed to using .upchuck() / upchuck operator)
  • .spectrum ( complex[], READ only ) manually retrieve the results of a transform
