Digital Waveguide Reverberators
It was mentioned in §3.7.8 above that FDNs can be formulated as special cases of Digital Waveguide Networks (DWN) (see Appendix C for a fuller development of DWNs). Specifically, an FDN is obtained from a DWN consisting of a single scattering junction (§C.15). It follows that the DWN paradigm provides a more generalized framework in which to pursue further improvements of reverberation architecture. For example, when multiple FDNs are embedded within a single DWN, it becomes possible to richly cross-couple them in an energy-controlled manner in order to create richer recursive structures than either alone. General DWNs were proposed for artificial reverberation in [430,433].
