Hey there,

I noticed that, while designing the resonant LPF, the frequency response always went to "infinity" when the values for Q went below a certain point, maybe around 0.7. Any idea why this is or how to fix this?

Use the sample project from Chapter 6 (the 2nd order resonant LPF). There is no issue with Q below 0.707 -- I've taken it all the way down to Q = 0.01 with no problems. The intermediate variable d = 1/Q will fail if Q = 0.0, but you can take the value down pretty close to zero.

Are you working on some other resonant LPF? If not, check your updating equations against the book code.
