EQ_Curve  Example Curves and Parameters
Introduction:Included here is a collection of EQ_Curve parameter sets, plus images of the resulting curves.
Standard Weighting Curves:Parameter sets for creation of the AWeight, BWeight, CWeight, and DWeight curves are given in separate sections below. Usage is discussed in the Standard Weighting Curves topic. All audio weighting curves are normalized to 0 dB at 1000 Hz, by standard convention. Here is a graphical comparison. Note that B and C are essentially identical above 1000 Hz:
AWeighting Curve:Two equivalent AWeight.CRV parameter sets are presented below. Both use frequencies in radians/second. Along with 4 zeros at DC, Aweighting uses 6 firstorder poles. The first parameter set gives the poles as such, while the second capitalizes on the fact that 4 of the 6 comprise two pairs of identical simple poles. It thus gives them as 2ndorder pairs, but with the damping factor set to 2; that makes them noncomplex pairs of 1storder poles. Note that these 4 poles are also the heart of the BWeight and CWeight curves below.

RIAA Phono Equalization Curves:These standard weighting curves are useful for testing phono preamplifier equalization. See RIAA Phono Equalization Testing for more details.
RIAA.CRV:The red curve above shows the Recording Industry Association of America standard phonograph playback equalization curve. The green curve is the inverse. (See below.)

InvRIAA.CRV:By changing the 4th line in the above to US=1 you can generate InvRIAA.CRV, the inverse (negation of dB values) of the RIAA playback curve shown in green in the image above. This is essentially the response of the recording system, which the RIAA playback equalization must compensate to get an overall flat response.
IEC_RIAA.CRV:This is a modified RIAA playback equalization standard approved by the International Electrotechnical Commission in 1976. Note that this is specified for playback equalization only, to be used with the standard RIAA recording equalization. It is identical to the RIAA curve at frequencies above about 70 Hz. The image below shows the difference at lower frequencies. Note that the frequency axis has been expanded by a factor of 10 using Decimate. See the Display Only section under Using EQ_Curve in the EQ_Curve  EquationtoCurve MiniApp topic for more information.

Simple Filters:The following Simple 1stOrder LowPass and Simple 1stOrder HighPass filters can be constructed from nothing more than a resistor and capacitor each, as long as they are driven from a lowimpedance source and are driving a highimpedance load. See Filters For Noise Rejection for a discussion.
Simple 1stOrder LowPass:
;<Help=H4911 WaitMsg="<<Simple 1stOrder LowPass, 3000 Hz" ;Title F=1 ;Reference freq UF=1 ;0=sec, 1=Hz, 2=rad/sec US=1 ;1 = negate curve (inverse curve) U0=0 ;DC zeros less DC poles.

Simple Dual 1stOrder BandPass:Note that this is essentially the above 300 Hz highpass filter followed by the 3000 Hz lowpass. However, you need to either put a buffer amp stage between them (so that the second filter input impedance doesn't load the first), or make sure that the lowpass input resistor is at least 10 times larger than the highpass resistor, and compute both capacitor values accordingly. See A Simple BandPass Filter under the Poles and Zeros subtopic of the EQ_Curve  EquationtoCurve MiniApp.

ComplexPole Filters:The following filters are usually constructed as active filters, which use operational amplifier (opamp) chips and require operating power. But they are much easier to design and adjust than passive filters, which often require nonstandard capacitor and/or inductor values. A quick Web search on "Active Filter Circuits" will turn up many good documents and sites. The classic introductory text is The Active Filter Cookbook by Don Lancaster, which you can pick up used for a few dollars. Although some of the opamps he mentions are outdated by modern devices, the basic theory and practical construction tips still hold, and there is plenty of handson information to quickly get you building working filters. Here we focus only on lowpass filters, all designed for a nominal 1000 Hz corner (cutoff) frequency. The following 2Pole LowPass Circuit section shows a basic building block that can be used to create physical filters, but here we deal with the parameters that describe them for EQ_Curve. All of the lowpass filters presented here use only complex pole pairs. All use frequency in Hz (UF=1 format). The simplest is the 2ndorder (2pole) Butterworth. There are no zeros at DC and no 1storder terms, so the relevant part of the EQ_Curve parameter set is: U2=1 ;Number of 2nd order pole or zero pairs UD=1 ;0=Re,Im 1=w0,d 2=w0,xi 3=w0^2,d*w0 Buf0[200]=1000 ;Neg = Pole at 1000 Hz Buf0[201]=1.414 ;Damping factor 'd' for above Here we have a single pair of poles (since it is a 2pole filter), so U2=1. The UD=1 format specifies that the first term of each pair will be the pole frequency (in Hz, since UF=1), and the second term will be the damping factor 'd'. We see here that the pole frequency is 1000 Hz (the minus sign indicates that it's a pole, not a zero), and the damping factor is 1.414. Note that for types other than Butterworth, the poles will not be at the overall cutoff frequency of 1000 Hz. The Bessel poles will be above 1000, and the Chebyshev will be below. Don't worry, they will give the stated 1000 Hz cutoff when both 2pole sections are used together, with their specified damping factors. In this and all the filters presented, you can change the cutoff frequency by scaling all pole frequencies: If you want a 2000 Hz cutoff instead of 1000, for example, multiply each pole frequency by 2. Do not change the damping ('d') values. You can change from lowpass to highpass in two steps: First, change the number of DC zeroes U0=0 to the filter order (U0=2 for the 2ndorder Butterworth, or U0=4 for the remaining 4thorder filters). Second, divide each lowpass pole frequency into 1000 Hz to get the highpass equivalent, then multiply by your desired cutoff. This is needed for those filters (other than Butterworth) that have pole frequencies that are not the same as the desired overall corner frequency... it just geometrically mirrors each pole about the target. For example, the 4thOrder 1 dB Ripple Chebyshev lowpass has poles at 502 and 943 Hz. If you want a 2000 Hz highpass, the new first pole pair would be (1000 / 502) * 2000 = 3984 Hz, while the second would be (1000 / 943) * 2000 = 2121 Hz. (Note: The lowpass to highpass conversion amounts to swapping the positions of tuning resistors R and capacitors C in the following 2Pole LowPass Circuit used for each stage.) The order of a filter controls how steep the rolloff is well beyond the cutoff; it is 6 * N dB/octave, where N is the order of the filter (number of poles). The EQ_Curve parameter examples below are all 4thorder, with the exception of a 2ndorder Butterworth for comparison. An evenorder filter can be built from a series of 2pole sections, each a copy of the 2Pole LowPass Circuit but with different values. You can connect highpass and lowpass filters in series (cascade) to make a bandpass filter, but only if the passband is fairly wide; if the lower and upper corner frequencies are too close together, the overlapping responses will give poor results. To determine whether you can use the cascade approach, first find (Fu  Fl) / sqrt(Fu * Fl), where Fu is the upper cutoff frequency and Fl is the lower. If this ratio is approximately 1 or above, a cascade should be fine. If less, a dedicated bandpass design is better... see the Active Filter Cookbook or similar for details. The response type of a filter (Butterworth, Bessel, Chebyshev) controls the shape near the cutoff, and in the passband itself. It also controls the transient response: Given a step change in a DC input voltage, this refers to how fast the output reaches that voltage, how much it overshoots, and how long it takes to decay back to the final value. In general, for any given filter order, the sharper you try to make the cutoff, the more transient overshoot and passband ripple. Given a specific goal (such as flattest passband, least transient overshoot, or sharpest cutoff), the filter type can be selected from known characteristics. Butterworth filters are maximally flat in the passband, but not especially sharp at cutoff. They have a moderate transient overshoot. They are usually the best allaround filter type in most circumstances, unless you are willing to give up passband flatness to achieve some particular goal. Bessel filters have no transient overshoot at all, but they have a very soft rolloff that extends well into the passband. One virtue for data acquisition is that they also have the least effect on wave shape. While all lowpass filters will soften the edges of a square wave (since they represent high frequencies that are being removed), the moreagressive types also tend to shift the wave's frequency components such that the basic shape is lessrepresentative of the input shape; a square wave typically will have "ringing" after each transient edge. Chebyshev filters are designed for sharpness at all costs. Besides having the worst transient overshoot and ringing of the types discussed here, they also allow ripples in the passband. By strategic location of a ripple peak right near the corner frequency, they improve the sharpness. Here is a "big picture" comparison of the frequency reponses of each of the filter types whose parameters are presented below.
Below is a detail view of the corner frequency region, achieved by setting Decimate to 5x to expand the low frequency range, and by adjusting the vertical axis using PgDn to decrease the dB range, and SHIFT plus PgDn to move the 0 dB point down to midscreen:
2Pole LowPass Circuit:Here is a basic circuit for a 2pole filter that is good for experimentation or limited production:
This is called an Equal Value SallenKey circuit because both R values are the same, and both C values are the same. To use it, you start by picking capacitor value C, for which you must have two equalvalue parts. Then compute the R resistor values from: R = 1 / (2 * pi * F * C) Here F is the desired pole frequency. (This will be the same as the corner frequency for Butterworth filters.) Now select Rf to be somewhere in the vicinity of 2 * R, though this very noncritical. Then using the 'd' damping factor from the parameters for the target filter, compute the value for Rg from: Rg = Rf / (2  d) The gain factor of this 2pole section will be 1 + Rf/Rg = 3  d. IMPORTANT: As with all active circuitry, you must make sure that the input signal is not so large that it causes the output to be overdriven. This is usually easy to arrange when the circuit is powered by +/15 V supplies, but may be more critical with low supply voltages. In some cases you may need an input attenuator to keep the signal within range. Other topologies have unity gain, but require that the capacitors have specific oddball ratios to get the proper damping. That's harder to arrange than equal values. Resistors may need oddball values, both for setting the pole frequency and the gain of the "equal value" design, but resistors are much cheaper than capacitors, and you can easily use a "trimpot" for precision gain adjustments. With the equalvalue approach you don't need a huge assortment of capacitor values; factors of 10 are adequate. Typically, 0.001, 0.01, and 0.10 microfarads are all you need to handle the entire audio range. This will result in resistor values in the 10K to 100K range. For example, with 0.001 microfarad and 10K ohms, the pole frequency will be 15.9 kHz. With 0.10 microfarad and 100K ohms, it will be 15.9 Hz. So, if you are going to experiment, you only need to buy 3 different bags of samevalue capacitors, and spend the rest of your budget on opamps and a big assortment of resistor values, concentrating on the 10K to 100K range. 5% parts tolerance is OK for most 4pole filters. Don't use old carbon composition resistors (the ones that look like little dark brown cylinders), get carbon film or (better) metal film instead. They have a "dipped" appearance, typically light brown for carbon film and light blue for metal film. Precision capacitors can be expensive, but since you only need 3 different values, and the exact value isn't important if you have a nice assortment of resistors, you can watch for a sale from a surplus supplier... you might get a bargain on some oddball capacitor value. Capacitor matching is more important than absolute value, which you can deal with by varying the resistor values. You can use Daqarta's LCR Meter MiniApp to match up pairs of capacitors from your big surplus bag. The type of capacitor is important, however, especially for temperature stability. In order of best to worst, they are teflon, polycarbonate, polystyrene or polypropolene, polyester (mylar), ceramic, tantalum, and electrolytic. In general, avoid the last 3 completely for filter tuning. Mylar, which is cheap and readily available, may be acceptable for noncritical work. There are many opamps that will be acceptable; if you have a favorite onhand already, you may want to try that first. In general, JFET input types like LF351 or TL081 are a good choice for standard dualsupply circuits, as are the dual opamp versions LF353 and TL082. For singlesupply opamps, you will usually have to provide a "ground splitter" consisting of an opamp buffer and an equalvalue voltage divider to set the output to half the the supply voltage. (See the one at the lower left in the External DCtoAC Modulator circuit diagram.) You then use that opamp output as the ground in the above circuit.
