For high quality acoustic echo cancellation long echoes have to be suppressed. classical LMS-based adaptive filters are not attractive as they are suboptimal from a computational point of view. Multirate adaptive filters such as the partitioned block frequency-domain adaptive filter (PBFDAF) are good alternatives and are widely used in commercial echo cancellers nowadays. In this paper the PBFDRAP is analyzed, which combines frequency-domain adaptive filtering with so-called "row action projection." Fast versions of the algorithm are derived and it is shown that the PBFDRAP outperforms the PBFDAF in a realistic echo cancellation setup.
