Example text

For example, for brass players, the fundamental frequencies of the pitches available at each valve fingering or slide position are found in the overtone series that is built on the lowest note at that fingering or position. As implied by the name “overtone” series, the frequencies above the fundamental are often referred to as overtones. However, the terms harmonics and partials are also used. The distinction between these terms is subtle. The term overtone implies that those frequencies are over the fundamental, so the overtone series would consist of the THE OVERTONE SERIES AND THE SPECTRUM VIEW & ?

This traditional notation is somewhat misleading, because it implies that every note is really a chord and that all the frequencies are distinct pitches. There is really just one pitch associated with an overtone series—the pitch related to the fundamental frequency. However, there are some useful features about the frequencies in the overtone series that can be seen with traditional notation. For example, for brass players, the fundamental frequencies of the pitches available at each valve fingering or slide position are found in the overtone series that is built on the lowest note at that fingering or position.

It could refer to the frequencies above the fundamental: the fundamental, the first harmonic, the second harmonic, etc. However, it could include the fundamental as the first harmonic, so the series would be: first harmonic (fundamental), second harmonic, third harmonic, etc. The term partial implies that all of the frequencies in a sound are all just parts of the sound: first partial (fundamental), second partial, third partial, etc. This term has some distinct advantages in that not every sound has frequencies that follow the overtone series, so the term partial could also be applied to frequencies of those sounds as well, whereas the terms overtone and harmonic only apply to sounds that follow the overtone series.
