Spectral Analysis of Musical Sounds with Emphasis on the by David M. Koenig

By David M. Koenig

This publication addresses the research of musical sounds from the point of view of somebody on the intersection among physicists, engineers, piano technicians, and musicians.

The examine is established into 3 elements. The reader is brought to quite a few waves and numerous methods of proposing, visualizing, and reading them within the first half. an instructional at the instruments used through the booklet accompanies this creation. the maths in the back of the instruments is left to the appendices. half presents a graphical survey of the classical parts of acoustics that pertain to musical tools: vibrating strings, bars, membranes, and plates. half 3 is devoted
almost solely to the piano. numerous - and 3-dimensional graphical instruments are brought to check a number of features of pianos: person notes and interactions between them, the lacking primary, inharmonicity, tuning visualization, the several distribution of harmonic energy for the
various zones of the piano keyboard, and capability makes use of for quality controls. those thoughts also are in brief utilized to different musical tools studied in previous components of the book.

For physicists and engineers there are appendices to hide the maths lurking underneath the varied graphs and a quick advent to Matlab® which was once used to generate those graphs. an internet site accompanying the booklet (https://sites.google.com/site/analysisofsoundsandvibrations/) contains:
- Matlab® scripts
- mp3 records of sounds
- references to YouTube videos
- and up to date result of fresh studies
