The most common fast convolution algorithms use fast Fourier transform FFT algorithms via the circular convolution theorem. Specifically, the circular convolution of two finite-length sequences is found by taking an FFT of each sequence, multiplying pointwise, and then performing an inverse FFT.
If one sequence is much longer than the other, zero-extension of the shorter sequence and fast circular convolution is not the most computationally efficient method available. The convolution of two complex-valued functions on R d is itself a complex-valued function on R d , defined by:. Conditions for the existence of the convolution may be tricky, since a blow-up in g at infinity can be easily offset by sufficiently rapid decay in f.
The question of existence thus may involve different conditions on f and g :. This is a consequence of Tonelli's theorem. This is also true for functions in L 1 , under the discrete convolution, or more generally for the convolution on any group. More generally, Young's inequality implies that the convolution is a continuous bilinear map between suitable L p spaces.
The Young inequality for convolution is also true in other contexts circle group, convolution on Z. The optimal value of B p , q was discovered in In addition to compactly supported functions and integrable functions, functions that have sufficiently rapid decay at infinity can also be convolved. Under some circumstances, it is possible to define the convolution of a function with a distribution, or of two distributions.
More generally, it is possible to extend the definition of the convolution in a unique way so that the associative law. Because the space of measures of bounded variation is a Banach space , convolution of measures can be treated with standard methods of functional analysis that may not apply for the convolution of distributions.
The convolution defines a product on the linear space of integrable functions. Other linear spaces of functions, such as the space of continuous functions of compact support, are closed under the convolution, and so also form commutative associative algebras. Proof: This follows from using Fubini's theorem i. No algebra of functions possesses an identity for the convolution. The lack of identity is typically not a major inconvenience, since most collections of functions on which the convolution is performed can be convolved with a delta distribution or, at the very least as is the case of L 1 admit approximations to the identity.
The linear space of compactly supported distributions does, however, admit an identity under the convolution. The set of invertible distributions forms an abelian group under the convolution. If f and g are integrable functions, then the integral of their convolution on the whole space is simply obtained as the product of their integrals:. This follows from Fubini's theorem. The same result holds if f and g are only assumed to be nonnegative measurable functions, by Tonelli's theorem.
More generally, in the case of functions of several variables, an analogous formula holds with the partial derivative :.
A particular consequence of this is that the convolution can be viewed as a "smoothing" operation: the convolution of f and g is differentiable as many times as f and g are in total. These identities hold under the precise condition that f and g are absolutely integrable and at least one of them has an absolutely integrable L 1 weak derivative, as a consequence of Young's convolution inequality. For instance, when f is continuously differentiable with compact support, and g is an arbitrary locally integrable function,.
These identities also hold much more broadly in the sense of tempered distributions if one of f or g is a rapidly decreasing tempered distribution , a compactly supported tempered distribution or a Schwartz function and the other is a tempered distribution. On the other hand, two positive integrable and infinitely differentiable functions may have a nowhere continuous convolution.
The convolution theorem states that. Versions of this theorem also hold for the Laplace transform , two-sided Laplace transform , Z-transform and Mellin transform. See also the less trivial Titchmarsh convolution theorem. So translation invariance of the convolution of Schwartz functions is a consequence of the associativity of convolution. A similar approach — application of a filter to the sounds generated by any program installed on your computer — is available through the SonicStage Mastering Studio Audio Filter feature available with some Sony Vaio machines.
The convolverVST plug-in is under active development. The current version has the following limitations:. The VST standard has evolved over time and is not precisely specified. Moreover, different hosts have different requirements of their VST and use the interface in different ways. I would very much welcome feedback on what works and what doesn't.
For many host applications, these must be in the execution path. Now start your host and scan for new VST plug-ins using your host application.
Some host applications require plug-ins to be dragged and dropped on them. Depending on your host, either at the scanning stage, or when you then load ConvolverVST, you will get a dialogue box reminding you that no filter has yet been selected. Depending on your host, this may happen more than once. Now get convolverVST's property page up. How you do so depends on your host:. Iris 2 Synth by iZotope.

This is the result after applying a second pass:. More sophisticated operations can be produced by combining convolutions. For example, by performing a dilation , and following up with an erosion , we can produce a closing effect:. We can also iterate this operation to strengthen the effect, performing the dilation twice and then the erosion twice:.
