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 FFT "chain" signal coming originally from an FFT UGen, perhaps via other PV UGens.
Defines how the data is windowed:
Can be used to account for zero-padding, in the same way as the FFT UGen.
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.
