Create logarithmic spacing with 1/N-th octave bands over a specified frequency range.
Updated 4 Jun 2023

This function creates log spacing for 1/n octave frequency bands for the range of frequencies containing [Fmin, Fmax]. By default, the reference center-band frequency is set at 1 kHz and calculations are preformed using a Base 2 method, but can be changed using the variable input. The reference center-band frequency can be specified as any numerical value. Available calculation methods are Base 2 and Base 10.
