Noise effects in a signal for driving a plant are reduced by generating a reference signal from the error signal. A signal generator generates a reference signal for input to a finite impulse response (FIR) filter. The error signal is produced by differencing the transfer function output and a disturbance signal. The error signal is input to the signal generator and to a least mean square calculator. The reference signal is input to a copy of the transfer function that outputs a modified reference signal. The modified reference signal is input to least mean square calculator. An LMS signal that updates the filter coefficients to minimize the mean square error is calculated and the LMS signal and the reference signal are input to the FIR filter with the FIR filter being arranged to process the LMS signal and the reference signal to minimize the error signal.
