Acoustic feedback is a recurrent problem in audio applications involving amplified closed loop systems. The goal of the proposed acoustic feedback control algorithm is to adapt an equalizer, applied to the microphone signal, to prevent feedback before the effect of it is noticeable. This is achieved by automatically decreasing the gain of an equalizer at frequencies where feedback likely will occur. The equalization curve is determined using information contained in an adaptively estimated feedback path. A computationally efficient implementation of the proposed algorithm, using short-time Fourier transform, is described.
