Graphic Equalizer Design Using Higher-Order Recursive Filters

A straight-forward design of graphic equalizers with minimumphase behavior based on recently developed higher-order bandshelving filters is presented. Due to the high filter order, the gain in one band is almost completely independent from the gain in the other bands. Although no special care will be taken to design filters with complementary edges except for a suitable definition of the cut-off frequencies, the resulting amplitude deviation in the transitional region between the bands will be sufficiently low for many applications.
