A neuro-fuzzy based filter for acoustic filtering is described. In order to perform temporal filtering, a proper architecture was developed exploiting a buffer memory. Subband analysis was used. This led to an architecture composed of a QMF filter bank, a neuro-fuzzy network for each subband and a reconstruction QMF filter bank Many simulation results are described relative to signals captured from real acoustic scenarios.
