'Colorless' Artificial Reverberation

Document Thumbnail

Electronic devices are widely used to introduce in sound signals an artificial reverberation subjectively similar to that caused by multiple reflections in a room. Attention is focused on those devices employing delay loops. Usually, these devices have a comb-like frequency response which adds an undesired -color- to the sound quality. Also, for a given reverberation time, the density of echos is far below that encountered in a room, giving rise to a noticeable flutter effect in transient sounds. A class of all-pass filters is described which may be employed in cascade to obtain -colorless- reverberation with high echo density.
