I am trying to read a signal with a DC offset of 511 (as seen by the ADC). The signal's tiny with regards to the offset, and I'm feeding it to a library that does a Fourier transform on it. It comes from a 3.5mm audio jack with AC coupling and the offset so I can see the full signal.
How may I increase the range of the signal? I am thinking something like the input signal is (490-530) and I want an output of (400-630) or something (numbers solely for example). The issue is that I still need the resulting signal to be centered around 511 AND I don't know the exact amplitude of the input (since it varies based on volume and particular audio going in at the moment).
I can assume that the volume of the audio input is relatively fixed (I need to be able to adjust this gain later, but I'm assuming the volume will be constant at some value per time I'm running the project), so I don't need envelope-following or something, but I'm not sure how to do this even so.
