Also, why do I get a difference around 1e-3 (small but much too large)
between H_orig and H_orig2?

b = [1 0.75 0.5];
H_orig = fft([b.' ; zeros(N-length(b), 1)]);
w = linspace(0, 2*pi, N);
H_orig2 = b(1) * exp(-1i*w*0) + b(2) * exp(-1i*w*1) + b(3) * exp(-1i*w*2);

I would exprect a result up to numerical precision.
