Re: four-channel output/surround reverb

another way would be to implement a software solution. i visited some
lectures at the sound design department at the technical university in
berlin a year or so ago where they work on octaphonics. they showed us
software for "drawing" pans between the 8 speakers. of course, these
channels could contain "dry" signals or effect returns (e.g. reverb) or
whatever. the composers there have done many pieces requiring this

unfortunately, the music they do is very intellectual - you're usually
given a philosophical text to examine while listening to the piece - you
know, ram the information that is sound through the transformation
matrices of our brains's intrinsic perceptual encoding system.

and not to forget: stockhausen was doing really great things with
multisource sound back in the 60's (e.g. worldex at osaka).
