An efficient artificial reverberator having two-stage decay and onset time controls is presented. A second-order comb filter controlling the reverberator frequency-dependent decay rates and onset times drives a switched convolution with short noise sequences. In this way, a non-exponential reverberation envelope is produced by the comb filter, while the switched convolution structure produces a high echo density. Several schemes for generating two-stage decays and onset time controls with different onset characteristics in different frequency bands are described.
