So with a one-pole LPF with its corner frequency set very low, you wI'll get a 
-6 sB slope, which is twice the slope that you desire for pink noise.if you 
follow that with a zero, the slope will bend back to zero slope.
So repeating and alternating poles and zeros, will get you a slope somewhere 
between 0 and -6 dB per octave. If you start with a pole on the left and follow 
it shortly with a zero, it will be closer to zero.  If you have more space 
between the pole and zero frequency, then the slope is higher.

Subject: [music-dsp] EQ-building with fine adjustable steepness 

Dear all, I registered new to the list for private interest (building self 
programmable music gear as hobby). Since there was activity yet, I would like 
to ask my question regarding equalizer builing:


We know, classical EQs will work that way, that they decrease e.g 6dB/12dB/24dB 
per octave starting from the edge frequency. So the 6dB x X behavior seems to 
be fixed with a simple n-order filter.


Now, I like to have an EQ with most probable flat response which is adjustable 
in steepness and frequency. At least the steepness schould be adjustable 
starting at zero. For instance I want to shape an EQ's curve from almost flat 
to totally steep continously such as we know it from white noise and pink noise 
curves. Regarding noise I am mixing this in percentages in between these cases, 
but it does not work with unknown signals.


Is there an analytic function decribing this? In another group, the 
recommendation was to use a filter cascade with hi/lo behavior and overlapping 
the edge frequencies to get small stairs. Any more detailled / better idea to 
do that?


Thanks in advance
