One paper on this has a title you might might overlook a hundred times:
"Musical Applications of New Filter Extensions to Max/MSP".

Pictures and a bit of discussion, too:
Ah, says the technique is from a Orfanidis paper in AES '96, "Digital
Parametric Equalizer Design with Prescribed Nyquist-Frequency Gain".
