To do this properly, and generate a realistic reverberation field, would
also involve frequency response behaviour or the walls, and most likely
many more walls.  To get realistic decays involving fiftieth-order or
hundredth-order reflections, the number of paths to simulate (per sound
source) would be completely out of the range of any known computing

Robin, thankyou for a really, really interesting explanation.

So at last - we find what Exascale computers will be used for. Modelling concert halls!

But fiftieth order reflections? Are sounds really that strong that we could hear something at that level?
Maybe, for all I know.
