The interpolation should be done separately for the amplitude and phase, not for the real and imaginary parts of the gain; otherwise the phase errors can degrade the amplitude, and vice versa.
Интерполяция должна проводится отдельно для амплитуды и фазы, а не для действительной и мнимой частей коэффициента усиления. В противном случае ошибки фазы могут уменьшить амплитуду и наоборот.
