An OSCILLATION produced in an object which resonates at the same FREQUENCY, or a HARMONIC multiple thereof, as that present in a sound wave in contact with the object.
The control of sound levels to ensure suitable placement between the lowest and highest distortion-free levels of an electroacoustical system.
Producing or characterized by rich or full sound, as implied by SONORITY or soniferous. Similar, but archaic, terms include: sonorific, sonoriferous, sonification, sonance, sonation.
In music, an adjective referring to HARMONY and its principles. In ACOUSTICS, when a vibrating object, such as a string, is set in motion, it vibrates both as a whole, with a FREQUENCY called the FUNDAMENTAL, and, with lesser intensity, in sections as well. If these smaller lengths are integer fractions (1/2, 1/3, 1/4, ...) of the total length of the string, their frequencies of OSCILLATION are called harmonics, and are integer multiples of the fundamental.
