In a previous paper, we described a constrained least square approach to FIR filter design that does not use "don't care" regions. In that paper, we described a simple algorithm for the design of lowpass filters according to that approach. In this correspondence, we describe a modification of that algorithm that makes it converge for many multiband filter designs. Although no proof of convergence is given, the modified algorithm remains simple and converges rapidly in many cases. In this
