```You forgot and underscore in xTransf definition:

ClearAll[xTransf, xTransf2];
xTransf2[f_] := 36*Sinc[6*Pi*f]^2;
xTransf[f_] := Limit[(-Cos[12*r*Pi] + Cos[24*r*Pi] +
12*r*Pi*Sin[24*r*Pi])/(E^(24*I*r*Pi)*(2*r^2*Pi^2)), r -> f];

FullSimplify[xTransf[f/24] == xTransf2[f/24], Element[f, Integers]]

==> True
