Reverberation is a well known effect particularly important for music listening especially for recorded and live music. Generally, there are two approaches for artificial reverberation: the desired signal can be obtained by convolving the input signal with a measured impulse response (IR) or a synthetic one. Taking into account the advantages of both approaches, a hybrid artificial reverberation algorithm is presented. The early reflections are derived from a real IR, truncated considering the calculated mixing time, and the reverberation tail is obtained considering the Moorer's structure. The parameters defining this structure are derived from the analyzed IR, using a minimization criteria based on Simultaneous Perturbation Stochastic Approximation (SPSA). The obtained results showed a high-quality reverberator with a low computational load.
