VOCAL’s Parametric Equalization (EQ) Filtering software is available as an individual software library
module or as part of VOCAL’s customizable Voice Quality Enhancement (VQE) SDK. Parametric EQ filters
provides user/implementor with the ability to shape the audio signal to meet their design requirements
or subjective preference for quality.
VOCAL’s software provides five main types of EQ filters to choose from:
- High Pass Filter – attenuates frequencies below the cutoff frequency
- Low Pass Filter – attenuates frequencies above the cutoff frequency
- High Shelving Filter – amplifies or attenuates frequencies above the cutoff frequency
- Low Shelving Filter – amplifies or attenuates frequencies below the cutoff frequency
- Peaking/Notching Filter – amplifies (peaking) or attenuates (notching) the specified frequency
EQ filters can be used in many points in the audio processing chain. For example, if an audio engineer needs to add some bass to the playback signal, then insert a low shelf filter with a positive gain factor. If the microphone signal contains a DC offset or low frequency noise, add a high pass filter to the audio chain. Parametric Equalization filters can be used to modified the frequency response of a signal to adhere to ITU and TIA Telephone performance standards.
