Stabilize Volume of BP Filters for Modal Synthesis

Hey guys,

I am looking at setting up a modal bank of bandpass filters but in my previous experiments I’ve found that the narrower the Q the quieter they get, which makes sense logically, but I was wondering if there is a formula to make the volume constant no matter the Q?

Maybe someone has come across a formula in a paper? :grin:


This entire chapter contains lots of resources on resonators, especially regarding all the possible normalisations: Time-Varying Two-Pole Filters

Hope this helps
