- Now we need to spectral process the spectra.
- Process one of the files normally and the next script will copy the processing script to the other folder.
- [m]->Right-Click Process 2D->Basic 2D
- Save->Execute->Done; then; RClick File->Select File->test.ft2->Read/draw->Done
- If your spectra look reversed (i.e. if your peaks do not seem to match your reference spectrum) it might be solved by changing to
- [m] '| nmrPipe -fn FT -neg \' to the script to the third lowest line.
- Save->Execute->Done. Then push [r] to refresh.
- Press [h], and find P0 and P1, and push [m], change parameters and update script
- The changes to '| nmrPipe -fn PS xxx \' should be the FIRST line (The proton dimension) with PS
- save/execute, push [r] (read) and the [e] (erase settings) to see result in NMRdraw
- And then run the next CPMG script
As suggested in the relax manaul, section 5.2.2 Spectral processing, the spectral processing script could look like:
|Caution Only put EXT in, AFTER you are done with phasing, or you will get problems phasing.|
|Note For GM you would have to play with the constants -g1 5 -g2 10. The NMRPipe manual on GM suggest to try as a start: -g1 20 -g2 35. -g2 specifies the Gaussian to apply in terms of a line broadening in Hz. It is usually adjusted to be larger (x 1.25 - 4.0) than the line sharpening specified by the -g1 option.|

Understand spectral processing
To understand the NMRPipe functions, you can look them up in the manual page: http://spin.niddk.nih.gov/NMRPipe/ref/nmrpipe/
See also the relax online manual for spectral processing.
A good book to loop up in, is Keeler, Understanding NMR Spectroscopy, Second edition.
|nmrPipe -fn SOL||Solvent Filter|
|nmrPipe -fn GM -g1 5 -g2 10 -c 1.0||Lorentz-to-Gauss Window, here for the measured direct dimension.||-c 1.0' The constant c is set to 1.0, since the phase P1 correction is different from 0.0, here -p1 -21.00, if -p1 0.0 then c 0.5.|
|nmrPipe -fn ZF -auto -size 8000||Zero Fill, here for the measured direct dimension.||The -auto will auto round to final size to power of 2. So here it is equivalent to: nmrPipe -fn -size 8192|
