X-FDBK is a Plugin That Automatically Eliminates Feedback Live

X-FDBK identifies the precise frequencies that cause feedback and surgically cuts them, dramatically shortening the setup time of monitors and PA speakers.

Developers Waves claim to have created the first plugin to provide a complete automatic feedback suppression solution with X-FDBK. It works within seconds to analyze your mix and decipher where the source of feedback is coming from, and makes the life of sound engineers way easier.

To eliminate feedback by ear you need to push your volume up until you can hear feedback, then use a graphic equaliser to find and remove feedback – an arduous process. With X-FDBK the process takes seconds as it identifies feedback quickly and precisely cutting them with a narrow notch to preserve the fidelity of the wedge or PA so you can push the gain without worrying about feedback.

X-FDBK dramatically improves the “ringing out” process and shortens it to a matter of seconds. It identifies the feedback frequencies quickly and precisely and cuts them with a narrow notch, preserving the fidelity of the wedge or PA and enabling you to maximize the gain without getting feedback.

All you need to do is turn up the levels on your wedges and PA until they start to feedback. Then activate the plugin and wait a few seconds until you hear the feedback disappear. The plugin’s graphic frequency spectrum shows you all feedback frequencies and the degree to which they were cut, letting you tweak them manually if you wish.

Here’s a feature overview:

  • Automatically cuts the frequencies that cause feedback
  • Get a clearer, louder, feedback-free sound from your monitors and PA
  • Set it and forget it
  • Dramatic improvement to your live sound and workflow
  • Quick and easy to use
  • A must-have survival tool for any live sound engineer or live performer

X-FDBK is available now at a promotional price of $99 (normally $149) from Waves website.
