Systems and methods provide input and output mode control for audio processing on a user device. Audio processing may be configured by monitoring audio activity on a device having at least one microphone and a digital audio processing unit, collecting information from the monitoring of the activity, including an identification of at least one application utilizing audio processing, and determining a context for the audio processing, the context including at least one context resource having associated metadata. An audio configuration is determined based on the application and determined context, and an action is performed to control the audio processing mode. User controls providing addition mode control may be displayed automatically based on a current application and determined context.

An audio driver equipped with a distortion compensation unit corrects for detected distortion and includes a digital to analog converter (DAC), an amplifier, and an output driver that drives a loudspeaker. Between the output driver and the loudspeaker, the audio driver can include a series resistor and a differential amplifier to measure the voltage across the resistor. A distortion detection unit can use the detected voltage to determine whether distortion, such as rub and buzz distortion is present. The distortion detection unit can comprise an analog to digital converter (ADC) to digitize the voltage data, an FFT to transform the voltage data into frequency information, a root-mean-square (RMS) module that measures the energy at each frequency, and an analysis module which looks for the distortion signature in the energy spectrum.

Presented is a method and associated system for suppression of linear and nonlinear echo. The method includes dividing an input signal into several frequency bands in each of a several of time frames. The input signal may include an echo signal. The method further includes multiplying the input signal in each of the several frequency bands by a corresponding echo suppression signal. Calculating the corresponding echo suppression signal may include estimating a power of the echo signal in a particular frequency band as a sum of several component echo powers, each of the several component echo powers due to an excitation from a far-end signal in a corresponding one of the several frequency bands. Calculating the corresponding echo suppression signal may further include subtracting the power of the echo signal in the particular frequency band from a power of the input signal in the particular frequency hand.


A method for echo cancellation in multichannel audio signals includes receiving a plurality of time-domain signals, including multichannel audio signals and at least one reference signal, transforming the time-domain signals to K under-sampled complex-valued subband signals using an analysis filter bank, and performing, for each of the K under-sampled complex-value subband signals, linear echo cancellation of the reference signal from each channel using an acoustic echo canceller. A probability of acoustic echo dominance is produced using a single-double talk estimator, and a semi-blind multichannel source separation is performed based on the probability and independent component analysis (ICA) to decompose the audio signals into a near-end source signal and a residual echoes using subband semi-blind source separation. The residual echo components are removed from the near-end source signal using a spectral filter bank, and the subband audio signals are reconstructed to a multichannel time-domain audio signal using a subband synthesis filter.
