Check it out if that may help you https://wavebeans.io 15:45:23 From Fredric Harris : don't use Gaussian... use Kaiser-bellel 15:45:28 From Fredric Harris : bessle 15:46:34 From Thad Welch : Back to the convolution idea … convolve 6 pulses and you are within 1% of a Gaussian 15:47:04 From Thad Welch : central limit idea 15:47:14 From Fredric Harris : it estimates main lobe, but our interest is often tails 15:47:40 From Brewster LaMacchia : @subbotin thatnk you for that. I use sox sometimes.
