- An oscillation of a frequency that reaches sufficient levels in a continuous path, electronic or acoustic, to be self sustaining and cyclical. The annoying tone (at any frequency) that’s heard when a microphone is turned up too high or when the tape play controls are turned up when recording on a single tape deck whose inputs and outputs are plugged into the same mixer. If feedback is left unattended, it will damage and/or destroy system components (usually the speakers first).
