Choice of Orthogonal Feedback Matrix $ Q$

Late reverberation should resemble exponentially decaying noise. This suggests the following two-step procedure for reverberator design:

  1. Set $ t_{60}=\infty$ and make a good white-noise generator
  2. Establish desired reverberation times in each frequency band by introducing losses
The white-noise generator is the lossless prototype reverberator.
