Well, Thomas, one thing that is pretty obvious, but overlooked is that you
can model reverbs directly from Irs these days (since machines are fast

So, rather than simulate reverb responses, you can apply a recorded room
response to your signal. Check out fast convolution and impulse responses
via goodle.
