Among the difficulties inherent in this scenario is the problem of comb filtering in the audio signal due to the microphone's proximity to a boundary, i.e. the ceiling or a nearby [...]

The first, and generally most popular given its byte-sized (heh) use of computer resources is known as “algorithmic” reverb, where the incoming signal is, sample by sample, multiplied by a factor dictated algorithmically by various twiddly knob-like parameters.
