Reverb Design is about creating an aesthetic appealing spacial impression aimed at sweetening the listening experience for a given context. However, the ambiguity of auditory and visual cues in reproduced sound makes it necessary to create an auditory illusion. To make this illusion work, an aesthetic concept of simplicity and intelligibility is proposed based on psychoacoustic facts and recording practice. A development kit for Pd[[Pure Data]] a dataflow programming environment is presented to encourage reverb design from a “bird's eye view”, with complete reverberation algorithms as basic building blocks. An example topology complements previous work with diffuse reflections and late reverberation.
