The inverse fast fourier transform converts from frequency content to a signal.
The fast fourier transform analyzes the frequency content of a signal. The IFFT UGen converts this frequency-domain information back into time-domain audio data. Most often this is used as the end of a process which begins with FFT, followed by frequency-domain processing using PV (phase-vocoder) UGens, followed by IFFT.
returns a time domain signal from converting the FFT frequency domain signal chain. The *new method is equivalent to the *ar message returns an audio rate signal.

The time-domain audio signal.
The IFFT UGen converts the FFT data in-place (in the original FFT buffer) and overlap-adds the result to produce a continuous signal at its output.
// without any modification, convert FFT chain (frequency domain signal) back to audio (time domain signal) ( { var in, chain; in = WhiteNoise.ar; chain = FFT(LocalBuf(2048), in); IFFT.ar(chain) * -20.dbamp // inverse FFT }.play; )
