02-schroeder-reverb.py - Simple reverberator based on Schroeder’s algorithms.

An artificial reverberation based on the work of Manfred Schroeder.

This reverberator takes a monophonic input and outputs two uncorrelated reverberated signals.

This algorithm presents four parallel comb filters fedding two serial allpass filters. An additional lowpass filter is used at the end to control the brightness of the reverberator.

The manual example for the Allpass object presents an other Schroeder’s reverberator.

If you are interested in builtin reverberation objects, see:

Freeverb, WGVerb, STRev, CvlVerb

Not really reverbs, but you can build some cool resonant effects with:

Waveguide, AllpassWG

from pyo import *

s = Server(duplex=0).boot()

soundfile = SndTable(SNDS_PATH + "/transparent.aif")

src = Looper(soundfile, dur=2, xfade=0, mul=0.3)
src2 = src.mix(2).out()

# Four parallel stereo comb filters. The delay times are chosen
# to be as uncorrelated as possible. Prime numbers are a good
# choice for delay lengths in samples.
comb1 = Delay(src, delay=[0.0297, 0.0277], feedback=0.65)
comb2 = Delay(src, delay=[0.0371, 0.0393], feedback=0.51)
comb3 = Delay(src, delay=[0.0411, 0.0409], feedback=0.5)
comb4 = Delay(src, delay=[0.0137, 0.0155], feedback=0.73)

combsum = src + comb1 + comb2 + comb3 + comb4

# The sum of the original signal and the comb filters
# feeds two serial allpass filters.
all1 = Allpass(combsum, delay=[0.005, 0.00507], feedback=0.75)
all2 = Allpass(all1, delay=[0.0117, 0.0123], feedback=0.61)

# Brightness control.
lowp = Tone(all2, freq=3500, mul=0.25).out()
