My name is Pelle ten Cate, I am a software engineer from Amersfoort, Netherlands, and I am also a graduated professional recording engineer.

I studied at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, and I am currently working for a Chicago-based tech startup called Occasion (occsn.com).

revised Why doesn't an FFT pitch filter fully 'mute' the selected pitch range?
Removed tags that nobody is going to look for.

comment Are there any mathematical advantages for higher sampling rates?
While this is not 'untrue', working with 24 bits introduces the drawback that you have to use dithering if you want to go back to 16 bits. Dithering noise can be reduced hugely if applied to a 96 KHz signal when using noise shaping. (see other answer for details)

Normal filters can't basically, since you always deal with 'filter components'. FFT filters are different, they can get any shape possible within the frequency and the dynamic range, and they can have any phase characteristics you wish. (That is why convolution reverb is based on FFT as well.)

Not entirely correct, you can actually get à real brickwall filter using FFT, as long as the FFT reaches the top frequency of your sample rate. That is, you can have an FFT filter that filters 5000Hz with 0dB and 4999Hz with -96dB. One of the advantages of a Fourier filter.

Really muting sound below a certain frequency only happens when using a so-called 'brickwall' filter. Are you sure you are using such a type of filter?
