# freqz

Compute frequency response

## Description

`[`

specifies options using one or more `H`

,`f`

] = freqz(___,`Name,Value`

)`Name,Value`

pair arguments.

`freqz(___)`

with no output arguments plots the frequency
response of the filter bank.

## Examples

### Frequency Response of `gammatoneFilterBank`

Create a `gammatoneFilterBank`

object. Call `freqz`

to get the complex frequency response, `H`

, of the filter bank and a vector of frequencies, `f`

, at which the response is calculated. Plot the magnitude frequency response of the filter bank.

```
gammaFiltBank = gammatoneFilterBank;
[H,f] = freqz(gammaFiltBank);
plot(f,abs(H))
xlabel('Frequency (Hz)')
```

To get the frequency response of a subset of filters in the filter bank, specify the second argument as a row vector of indices between one and the number of filters in the filter bank. Get the frequency response of the 10th filter in the filter bank and plot the magnitude frequency response.

```
[H,f] = freqz(gammaFiltBank,10);
plot(f,abs(H))
xlabel('Frequency (Hz)')
```

To specify the number of FFT points used to compute the frequency response, use the `NFFT`

name-value pair. Specify that the frequency response is calculated using a 128-point FFT. Plot the magnitude frequency response.

[H,f] = freqz(gammaFiltBank,'NFFT',128); plot(f,abs(H)) xlabel('Frequency (Hz)')

To visualize the magnitude frequency response only, call `freqz`

without any output arguments. Plot the magnitude frequency response, in dB, of filters 20, 21, and 22 using a 1024-point DFT.

`freqz(gammaFiltBank,[20,21,22],'NFFT',1024)`

### Frequency Response of `octaveFilterBank`

Create an `octaveFilterBank`

object. Call `freqz`

to get the complex frequency response, `H`

, of the filter bank and a vector of frequencies, `f`

, at which the response is calculated. Plot the magnitude frequency response in dB.

octFiltBank = octaveFilterBank; [H,f] = freqz(octFiltBank); plot(f,20*log10(abs(H))) xlabel('Frequency (Hz)') ylabel('Magnitude (dB)') set(gca,'XScale','log') axis([10 octFiltBank.SampleRate/2 -100 2])

To get the frequency response of a subset of filters in the filter bank, specify the second argument as a row vector of indices between one and the number of filters in the filter bank. Get the frequency response of the 5th filter in the filter bank and plot the magnitude frequency response in dB.

[H,f] = freqz(octFiltBank,5); plot(f,20*log10(abs(H))) xlabel('Frequency (Hz)') ylabel('Magnitude (dB)') set(gca,'XScale','log') axis([10 octFiltBank.SampleRate/2 -100 2])

To specify the number of FFT points used to compute the frequency response, use the `NFFT`

name-value pair. Specify that the frequency response is calculated using a 8192-point FFT. Plot the magnitude frequency response in dB.

[H,f] = freqz(octFiltBank,'NFFT',8192); plot(f,20*log10(abs(H))) xlabel('Frequency (Hz)') ylabel('Magnitude (dB)') set(gca,'XScale','log') axis([10 octFiltBank.SampleRate/2 -100 2])

To visualize the magnitude frequency response only, call `freqz`

without any output arguments. Plot the magnitude frequency response, in dB, of filters 4, 5, and 6 using a 1024-point DFT.

`freqz(octFiltBank,[4,5,6],'NFFT',1024)`

## Input Arguments

`obj`

— Object to get filter frequency responses from

`gammatoneFilterBank`

| `octaveFilterBank`

Object to get filter frequency responses from, specified as an object of `gammatoneFilterBank`

or `octaveFilterBank`

.

`ind`

— Indices of filters to calculate frequency responses from

1:*N* (default) | row vector of integers with values in the range [1, *N*]

Indices of filters to calculate frequency responses from, specified as a row vector
of integers with values in the range [1, *N*]. *N* is
the total number of filters designed by `obj`

.

### Name-Value Arguments

Specify optional pairs of arguments as
`Name1=Value1,...,NameN=ValueN`

, where `Name`

is
the argument name and `Value`

is the corresponding value.
Name-value arguments must appear after other arguments, but the order of the
pairs does not matter.

*
Before R2021a, use commas to separate each name and value, and enclose*
`Name`

*in quotes.*
