An ordering of a system of PITCHes, usually in ascending FREQUENCY order. The distance between any two pitches or NOTEs is called an interval.
The FREQUENCY content of a sound or audio SIGNAL, often displayed as a graphic representation of amplitude against frequency. The spectrum of a sound is a primary determinant of its perceived TIMBRE.
For any PERIODIC wave the wavelength is the distance from a given point in the wave to the corresponding point in the next cycle of the wave, frequently represented by the Greek letter lambda. It may also be thought of as the distance the sound travels in one CYCLE or PERIOD.
(Greek: monos = one; phone = sound) A form of reproduction which records, transmits and reproduces the original sound along a single CHANNEL, regardless of the number of loudspeakers used.
