Re: digital filter design

Also take a look at L.B.Jackson's text book "Digital filters and Signal
processing" Kluwer publishing, Ch.4. It  has a unity gain resonator which
can be  tuned by varying just one coefficient. Incidentally that was the
first digital filter ever built (with J.F.kaiser, and J.McDonald) some time in
1964?? RK
