In this paper, we compare the performance of two active dereverberation techniques using a planar array of microphones and loudspeakers. The two techniques are based on a solution to the Kirchhoff-Helmholtz Integral Equation (KHIE). We adapt a Wave Field Synthesis (WFS) based method to the application of real-time 3D dereverberation by using a low-latency pre-filter design. The use of First-Order Differential (FOD) models is also proposed as an alternative method to the use of monopoles with WFS and which does not assume knowledge of the room geometry or primary sources.

Active noise control (ANC) over a sizeable space requires a large number of reference and error microphones to satisfy the spatial Nyquist sampling criterion, which limits the feasibility of practical realization of such systems. This paper proposes a mode-domain feedforward ANC method to attenuate the noise field over a large space while reducing the number of microphones required.

Selective active noise control (SANC) is a method
to select a pre-trained control filter for different
primary noises, instead of using conventional
real-time computation of the control filter coefficients.
This paper:
1. Proves the frequency-band-match method.
2. Propose a SANC based on a partitioned frequency
domain filter.
3. Both simulation and real-time experiment is
carried out to validate the algorithm.

Selective active noise control (SANC) is a method to select a pre-trained control filter for different primary noises, instead of using conventional real-time computation of the
control filter coefficients. SANC has the advantage of improving the robustness of control filter while reducing the
computational complexity. This paper presents a practical
strategy in choosing a suitable control filter based on the
frequency-band-match mechanism implemented in a partitioned frequency domain filter structure. Both simulation and

One major issue of implementing broadband active noise control systems in reverberant
rooms is the lack of reference signals. In this work, by exploiting the spatial sound
field characteristics, a time-domain sound field separation method is developed to
generate the reference signal for broadband active noise control systems in reverberant
rooms. The time-domain sound field separation method separates the outgoing field produced
by the primary source from the secondary source feedback and room reverberation on a

With the strong growth of the mobile devices and emerging virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications, headsets are becoming more and more preferable in personal listening due to its convenience and portability. Assistive listening (AL) devices like hearing aids have seen much advancement. Creating a natural and authentic listening experience is the common objective of these VR, AR, and AL applications. In this tutorial, we will present state-of-the-art audio and acoustic signal processing techniques to enhance the sound reproduction in headsets and hearing aids.

Parallel-form narrowband feedback active noise control (FBANC) system has been shown to perform better than conventional internal model control (IMC) based FBANC system in cancelling multi-tonal noise. A previous paper illustrated a novel approach in estimating the frequencies of the multi-tone noise, and using an internal tonal generator cum frequency grouping unit to increase its frequency separation in each channel of the parallel-form FBANC system based on a full-band error.
