ofxFft is a Fast-Fourier Transform addon for openFrameworks
ofxFft wraps two libraries with the same interface: FFTW and KISS FFT. KISS FFT is included with OF, MIT licensed, and enabled by default. FFTW is GPL and must be manually enabled using the
OFX_FFT_USE_FFTW compiler define.
Installation & Usage
To install ofxFft, move the ofxFft folder to your
Search paths required when using ofxFFt:
Basic usage is demonstrated by example-eq and example-basic.
With OF version 0.9.0, the OF Project Generator will add the compiler search paths for the project automatically if configured to include ofxFft.
Project files for the examples are not included so you will need to generate the project files for your operating system and development environment using the OF ProjectGenerator which is included with the OpenFrameworks distribution.
Point the ProjectGenerator to
addons/ofxFft, change the project name to the exact name of the example you want to generate (ie
example-basic), and make sure to choose
ofxFft from the addons. Hitting "Generate" will populate that example with the project files you will need to build it.
To use ofxFft with FFTW instead of KISS FFT, make sure you download the precompiled libraries.
Next, you'll need to add
OFX_FFT_USE_FFTW to your compiler flags for each project using ofxFFT:
- Select the Project -> Build Settings -> Other C++ Flags
- add the following:
Linux (Makefiles & Codeblocks):
- edit config.make in your project folder and add the following to the USER_CFLAGS line:
- right-click on your project in the project tree
- select "Build options..."
- make sure the project name is selected in the tree (not release or debug)
- select the "Compiler settings" tab and add the following to the "#defines" tab:
- right click on the project in the project tree and select Properties
- set the Configuration to All Configurations
- add the defines and search paths:
- add the following to Configuration Properties->C/C++->Preprocessor->Preprocessor Definitions:
- If you're using FFTW on Windows, you'll also need to add:

Using FFTW in the examples
If you're using FFTW with the example projects, in ofApp.cpp, comment the line:
fft = ofxFft::create(bufferSize, OF_FFT_WINDOW_HAMMING);
and uncomment out the line:
//fft = ofxFft::create(bufferSize, OF_FFT_WINDOW_HAMMING, OF_FFT_FFTW);
FFTW compilation notes
FFTW was compiled with:
./configure --disable-shared --enable-static --enable-float --enable-threads make sudo make install
which puts the static libraries in .libs
Note that the library is compiled in 32-bit mode on both Windows and OS X.
