Efficiently detecting a frequency using a Goertzel filter

The Goertzel algorithm detects a specific, predetermined frequency in a signal. This can be used to analyze a sound source for the presence of a particular tone. The algorithm is simpler than an FFT and therefore a candidate for small … Continue reading
