A frequency in the spectrum of a sound which
is in the Natural Harmonic Series is called a:

Choose One
Harmonic
Partial
Note
Pitch
A frequency in the spectrum of a sound which
is NOT in the Natural Harmonic Series is called a:

Choose One
Harmonic
Overtone
Partial
Note
Pitch
Another term for HARMONIC is:

Choose One
Harmonic
Partial
Overtone
Note
Pitch
Technically, HARMONIC and OVERTONE mean EXACTLY
the same thing.

Choose One
True
False
The THIRD harmonic in the NATURAL HARMONIC
SERIES is equivalent to which OVERTONE:

Choose One
Fundamental
1st Overtone
2nd Overtone
3rd Overtone
4th Overtone
The pattern of a vibrating body is called
its:

Choose One
Harmonic Series
Sound Spectrum
Mode of Vibration
Mode of Equilibrium
Mode of Sound
A frequency (pitch or note) which is perceived
by the listener which is significantly lower than the Fundamental
in the Natural Harmonic Series is called a:

Choose One
Partial
Overtone
Harmonic
Subharmonic
Sound Spectrum
With natural percussive sounds (bells, drums,
etc.), higher frequencies have a LONGER amplitude envelope
that lower frequencies.

Choose One
True
False
When you are synthesizing natural sounds
with mutiple frequencies (i.e., the spectrum of the natural
harmonic series), the respective amplitudes of the individual
frequencies should:

Choose One
All be the same
Follow a logarithmic curve
When two periodic sounds occur simultaneously
and one has a frequency that is slightly different than the
other, an acoustic phenomonon will occur known as :

Choose One

Whipping
Clipping
Ailising
Beating
Another name for the effect which occurs
as described in the question above is:

Choose One
Tremolo
Vibrato
Legato
Morendo
Bravado
