Various audio signal processing applications, such as source separation and dereverberation, require an accurate mathematical modeling of the input audio data. In the literature, many works have focused on source signal modeling, while the reverberation model is often kept very simplistic. This paper aims to investigate a stochastic room impulse response model presented in a previous article: this model is first adapted to discrete time, then we propose a parametric estimation algorithm, that we evaluate experimentally. Our results show that this algorithm is able to efficiently estimate the model parameters, in various experimental settings (various signal-to-noise ratios and absorption coefficients of the room walls).
