This letter is offered in response to the Research Note, Creating Filters With Arbitrary Response Characteristics for Use in Hearing and Speech Research, by Hillenbrand & Houde (1996), that appeared in a previous issue of this journal. Although the design technique described by the authors will be useful in some filtering applications, I feel it necessary to clarify some important issues associated with the technique that were not discussed or referenced. Should speech and hearing researchers wish to implement digital filters using this method, they are encouraged to first understand its limitations and make comparisons to other filter design techniques that may in many instances be preferable.
