Digital spectral analysis is the significant factor of consideration by which numerous applications importantly need of effective reception and analysis of signals, that is, the reception of signals is needed with improved spectral characteristics and simple techniques. To meet the above requirements, a novel technique is proposed in digital bandpass filter bank, supported by 'Modified Kaiser window' based Finite impulse response method in Multirate processing followed by Fast Fourier transform. The novel technique influences largely in the proposed method in such a way that it involves the modification of samples of input signal for deriving the advantages in respect of selectivity, stopband attenuation, peak output and constant width cum sharp rise of response apart from smooth spectral output when compared with existing methods. Further, reduction in computational complexity and hardware complexity are the additional features of the proposed method, henceforth; its spectral output is suitable in many of real time applications and moreover advantageous in digital hearing aids. The simulation results are drawn and its performance is compared to elucidate the advantages in the proposed method.
