  Audio feedback - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Audio feedback (also known as the Larson effect) is a special kind of feedback which occurs when a loop exists between an audio input (for example, a microphone or guitar pickup) and an audio output (for example, a loudspeaker).
More specifically, the conditions for feedback follow the Barkhausen criterion, namely that an oscillation occurs in a feedback loop whose delay is an integer multiple of 360 degrees and the gain is equal to or greater than one (both at the given feedback frequency).
Most audio feedback results in a high-pitched squealing noise familiar to those who have listened to bands at house parties, and other locations where the sound setup is less than ideal - this usually occurs when live microphones are placed in the general direction of the output speakers.

 Feedback - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Feedback may be negative, which tends to reduce output (but in amplifiers, stabilises and linearises operation), or positive, which tends to increase output.
Negative feedback is often deliberately introduced to increase the stability and accuracy of a system, as in the feedback amplifier invented by Harold Stephen Black.
In zymology, feedback serves as regulation of activity of an enzyme by its direct product(s) or downstream metabolite(s) in the metabolic pathway.

 Feedback and fidelity part 1
Feedback may be as stylish as a ‘63 Dodge Dart, but it’s a dear friend who’s brought beauty and joy to my life.
The amount of feedback, expressed in decibels (dB), is the ratio of the gains without and with feedback (the open and closed-loop gains): 6dB is a factor of 2 in voltage (4 in power); 20dB is a factor of 10 in voltage (100 in power), etc.
Feedback is particularly touchy in single-ended circuits because the output transformer cutoff frequency is so close to the top of the audible range.

 How to Eliminate Audio Feedback
Audio feedback is the ringing noise (often described as squealing, screeching, etc) sometimes present in sound systems.
One of the most common feedback situations is shown in the diagram below - a microphone feeds a signal into a sound system, which then amplifies and outputs the signal from a speaker, which is picked up again by the microphone.
In this case, the feedback is still a problem and further action must be taken.

Because of this, the audio action designed to provide audio feedback for a given text action cannot be mapped to the appropriate keystroke without overriding the given text action.
To deal with this, the audio actions are designed to invoke their original action in order to carry out the actual action; then the audio action provides appropriate audio feedback.
The audio component is a term applied to those portions of the system which produce the sounds and speech used by the audio look and feel.

 I am Dan
Steve references a Kairos piece written by Jack Wilson that discusses the use of audio files for providing feedback on written papers, but on e-mail discussions and in blogs it is becoming much more common to hear of scholars moving toward recording lectures, podcasting observations about topics, or making audio files for course materials.
On a related note, I think audio allure might be dangerous or enabling depending on how well it facilitates the kinds of writer and reader relationships one wishes to acheive.
The comment feature in MS word served as the technical engine for opening the paper to other voices and readers were forbidden to hunt for surface errors, and instead called to write their own thoughts out about the topic under discussion and the issues raised by the paper.

 Developing An Audio-Enabled Intraoperative Computer-Assisted Surgical System
The little audio feedback that does exist in virtual reality applications and in everyday audio feedback systems suffers from serious shortcomings that can potentially be corrected much more simply than increased computing power for visual displays can be invented.
The main challenge to the successful development of a VR audio system lies in developing a methodology for transforming the instrument and anatomical spatial data into audio feedback that is optimally intuitive, information-rich, ergonomic and economical in terms of the learning curve for users.
Audio output may be provided to the surgeon via a number of different sound production devices: inserted earphones, over-the-ear headphones, stereophonic/quadraphonic speaker systems or a single parabolic ceiling-mounted speaker.

 PSW Sound Reinforcement Forums: LAB: The Classic Live Audio Board => Feedback Supressors
Feedback happens when the gain (volume if you will) of a mic channel is turned up so high that the system begins amplifying the sound coming from the speakers (which in turn gets picked up and amplified again over and over).
Mics used for live audio are also designed to work best with the speaker's mouth within a few inches of the microphone (from almost touching to at most 5 inches away).
A clip-on mic (often referred to as a lavier or lav mic) is much more difficult to use in live audio without feedback and of course is also the traditional favorite of many public speakers (especially when used with a wireless belt pack).

 Feedback and fidelity part 2
Instead, balanced feedback from the output is returned to the cathodes of the driver (TU3, TU4) and output tubes (TU5, TU6).
The difference between figures 7 and 8 is modest because only 15.4 dB of feedback has been employed: Had more been applied to emphasize the effects of clipping, the sound quality would have suffered, and the Local Hero would not have been such a good example of proper use of feedback.
The optimum output impedance and feedback level depends on a number of factors that ultimately reduce to a tradeoff between mushy bass at one extreme (no feedback) and harsh clipping at the other (too much feedback).

 Zero Feedback Transformer Audio Power Amplifier - About   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In it's most basic form an audio power amplifier is an electrical circuit that drives current derived from an input signal into a voice coil.
The only feedback mechanism is within Q1 and Q2 as they operate in voltage follower mode and regulate the voltage across the source / drain to match that of the gate (less the semiconductor voltage drop).
Driving input and output differentially (balanced in audio parlance) again minimises radiated emission, and any noise pickup on the input cable is cancelled out.

 Extron FBI 100 Feedback Loop Isolators   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
An audio feedback loop, represented as a progressively loud tone, can occur when the VCR output signal is routed back into its A/V input via a switching system.
For example, feedback is likely to occur in a videoconference environment when mixed audio from the videoconference session is simultaneously recorded and introduced back into the system as an active source.
In record mode, the FBI 100 prevents feedback loops by directing the information to be recorded specifically to the VCR's A/V input while isolating the VCR output from the rest of the system.

 Audio Feedback
A Unidirectional Headset Mic is pointed toward your mouth and therefore it has a much less probability of picking up sound coming from the speaker which causes feedback.
A Headset Mic is closer to your mouth than a Lapel Mic and this minimizes the amount of amplification gain that is required for you to be heard well by your students.
The higher the amplifier gain the greater is the probability for feedback.

Audio will frequently drop out or make loud popping and screeching noises, sometimes so severe that the unit fails to continue working.
I previously reported occasional audio cut-out and I have since discovered on the cubeowner.com forums that it is an inherent problem associated with power draw on the USB and FireWire busses of Cubes.
The audio would hiccup and cut out, about once a day (as opposed to half a dozen times a day now, varying with usage), but going to the preference pane can changing a setting (like I do now) would fix it.

 Audio Designs With Opamps
When an opamp is operated in its linear mode (which is most of the time for audio), the feedback circuit will cause a voltage to appear on the inverting input (-in) that is almost exactly equal to that present on the non-inverting input (+in).
The current through the feedback resistor must be exactly equal and opposite to ensure that zero volts is at the -in terminal (so we don't break Rule #1).
The sinewave shown on the oscilloscope trace is obtained from the Vout terminal, and the square wave is obtained from the opamp's output (these are not to scale).
