This is a really interesting idea. I'm very much into the
"exciter-resonator" way of looking at synthesis and so of course I like to
use spring-reverbs but that could be extended a lot further. Using a channel
of ADC and DAC acoustical objects (like tubes with a speaker and mic) could
be inserted into ChucK as well... but I wonder if the spring-reverb models
could be extended to substitute things like -say- a reed for a spring.

This is exciting (pun intended, I suppose), I wonder how practical this
could be.

Thanks for sharing this idea!
