```hi mmb, thanks for showing up :)

hmmmm, my problem was that the phase response graph generated from your Pd
patch based on RBJ looks different than the one from max's phaseshift. But
it just occurred to me that one thing about it might only be a matter of
normalizing it and displaying in the same way.

For example, your patch gives us a drop from 0 to -1 and then from 1 to 0,
while phaseshift in Max is from 0 to -2pi continuously. I'm now considering
that both behaviours could be related, only that your patch "wraps" it
around -1 back to 1. What do you think?

But even so, there's also the issue of getting the Q parameter to behave in
the same way. Max's phaseshift, when set to Q = 0.1 and freq = 4KHz will
give you a linear drop from 0 to -2pi. Now, I can't seem to get that based
on RBJ's cookbook formulas and your patch. But then, another thing I
haven't thought of might be a difference in the scale plot...

One way or another, the Q parameter seems off.

So, as you can see, there are these plotting differences, but I know what
you mean, that is what I was suspecting too, it sure looks like the same
thing at a first glance, meaning you can get to it from a biquad
coefficient perspective. The problem is that max's phaseshift isn't very
clear about what it really is, other than saying it is a second order
filter. But that doesn't have to imply it is the same as a second order

Thanks
