## Abstract

Filtering a signal by up samping in matlab is able to change the original frequency of the signal by a mutiplying it with an integer, and filtering a signal by down samping in matlab is able to change the original frequency of the signal by a dividing it by an integer. For example, by using the method above, a pure frequency signal with pitch C can be transfer to #C or bC. However, if the signal C needs to be transfer to D or F, then simply mutiplying or dvivding the original frequency by integer is not going to work. Instead, the original frequency needs to be mutiplied by a fraction number. Thus the goal of this project is to design a Matlab function to mutiply the input signal frequency by a fraction to make a arbitary change of the pitch of the input signal.

## Theory

Up-Sampling is a "Zero-Padding Procedure" that increase the number of samples of a DT signal. More specificals, when up sampling, zeros are added between the samples of a signal. Down-Sampling is to decrease the sample size. In the other word, it divides the input signal into segments, and pick a point from each segment to form a new signal.

## Procedure

1. Let input be a pure frequency, i.e. a sine wave function. Up sample by factor of 5 then down sample by factor 3. To avoid aliasing, the filter was build by MATLAB embedded function "fir1" with order= 20, cut-of frequency =1/5.

According to above graph, the output signal is up-sampled by 5/3

In frequency domain, the signal was decreased by factor of 3/5, as the figure indicated above.

We can see the energy concentrate at 800 Hz and 500 Hz for input and output respectively.

## Conclusion

The function designed in this project is able to adjust signal frequency by arbitary amount. The method is to up sample the input and then down sample it.
