What is a sound spectrum?

Learn how sounds can be represented graphically as a sound spectrum. Discover how the sound spectra of different instruments are different, even though they play the same note. See how a sound wave can be analysed as the sum of a fundamental frequency and numerous harmonics. This resource consists of a web page with text, ...
