For a sine function, the maximum value
sin(x) returns will always be 1 (and -1) correct?
Is this the same for a Fourier function?
I'm writing a program that simulatates oscillators, and my fourier functions are returning slightly more than one at the tips of the saw wave, and it's a bit unsettling. If it is normal, then I can move on with things, but if it's not - then I'll have to investigate whatever programming issue it is.
If it is normal - any interesting implications for it? For me - this program is a step towards generating sound with it - a value of more than 1 would cause clipping (ie you'd simply be chopping those tips off), so perhaps some gain reduction is required.
