generate echo with convolution and cancel it

generate echo with convolution and cancel it

generate echo with convolution and cancel it

hello guys

i am beginner at using matlab

i want to generate echo on a sound file i recorded in wav and then made echo on it with convolution method.

and the second part cancel the echo

i dont know how to do it in matlab , i know formulas only .

any help i will be thankful


RE: generate echo with convolution and cancel it

thx :)

i have this code for do echo:

CODE --> matlab

%working code for echo in conv
x = zeros(1000,1);
x(1) = 1;
z= conv(x,y);
sound (z,Fs); 

i want remove the echo from the sound and get back original sound but with using convolution method only??!!

i tried this method

CODE --> matlab


N=25199; % delay in samples

y=z; % Signal with echo

x(1:N)=y(1:N); % First N samples of x and y agree

for i=N+2:length(y)

x(i)=y(i)-0.75*x(i-N); % Inverse filtering



plot(y); % Plot signal with echo



plot(x); % Plot signal without echo


soundsc(y); % Listen to signal with echo

soundsc(x); % Listen to signal without echo 

x sound only same as echo one and when reduce N samples to less .... there is echo come over the original one

any help plz??!!!

RE: generate echo with convolution and cancel it
