The following paper analyzes the use of the Genetic Algorithm (GA) in conjunction with a length-4 feedback delay network for audio reverberation applications. While it is possible to manually assign coefficient values to the feedback network, our goal was to automate the generation of these coefficients to help produce a reverb with characteristics as similar to those of a real room reverberation as possible. To do this we designed a GA to be used in conjunction with a delay-based reverb that would be more desirable in the use of real-time applications than the more computationally expensive convolution reverb.
