The tonal QUALITY or TIMBRE of a sound. The term is usually used in a subjective, descriptive manner, often with such adjectives as 'full' or 'rich'.
The atmosphere exerts pressure on all objects in it. When a vibrating body moves in air, it creates slight disturbances of the AMBIENT atmospheric pressure. The AMPLITUDE of these pressure variations is called the sound pressure variation, whereas the effective pressure variation is 0.707 the maximum value. The oscillating variations in sound pressure (called the WAVEFORM of the sound) PROPAGATE in the form of a SOUND WAVE.
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.
A segment or sequence of segments of MAGNETIC TAPE which have been SPLICEd end-to-end to form a loop or circle. When played in this form, the taped sound is continuously repeated, as distinct from tape ECHO or tape FEEDBACK.
