Description

This atom performs a conversion of the input X (containing physical data) into another unit or domain. The type of conversion is controlled by the selection input TYPE and the parameter inputs A and B. The input data can be stored in a number or vector. If the input is a vector, the conversion is applied to all elements.

applied transformation /conversion
0 or LINEAR 1 0 Linear transformation. Parameter A is used as slope and parameter B as offset

$Y=A.X+B\!$ 1 or HZ2CENT 1 0 Convert frequency from Hertz to Cents. Parameter A is used as reference frequency and B as offset in Cents.

$Y=1200\cdot \log _{2}\left({\frac {X}{A}}\right)+B$ 2 or CENT2HZ 1 0 Convert frequency from Cents to Hertz. Parameter A is used as reference frequency and B as offset in Cents.

$Y=A\cdot 2^{\frac {X-B}{1200}}$ 3 or HZ2BARK - - Convert frequency from Hertz to Barks. Uses the transformation published by Zwicker and Fastl (1990). The parameters A and B are ignored.
4 or BARK2HZ - - Convert frequency from Barks to Hertz. Uses an iteration method that minimizes the distance to the forward conversion algorithm. The parameters A and B are ignored.
5 or LIN2LOG 1 20 Convert from linear to logarithmic scale. Parameter A is used as reference value and B as factor.

$Y=B\cdot log_{10}\left({\frac {X}{A}}\right)$ 6 or LOG2LIN 1 20 Convert from logarithmic to linear scale. Parameter A is used as reference value and B as factor.

$Y=A\cdot 10^{\frac {X}{B}}$ 7 or HZ2MEL - - Convert from Hertz to Mel. The parameters A and B are ignored.
8 or MEL2HZ - - Convert from Mel to Hertz. The parameters A and B are ignored.
9 or HZ2ERB - - Convert from Hertz to ERB (Equivalent Rectangular Bandwidth). The parameters A and B are ignored.
10 or ERB2HZ - - Convert from ERB (Equivalent Rectangular Bandwidth) to Hertz. The parameters A and B are ignored.
