I'm seeking evidence for or against the claim that, when listening to musical instruments, pitch perception relies primarily on the sustained or steady-state portion of the tone, rather than the attack transient. My own search has turned up papers on similar topics (Robinson & Patterson, 1995; Campbell & Heller, 1979; Gordon, 1987), but nothing that addresses my question in particular. Many thanks for any references. Sincerely yours, Paul von Hippel Post-Doctoral Fellow School of Music Ohio State University 1866 College Road Columbus, OH 43210 614 292-7321 von-hippel.1(at)ohio-state.edu (You can also reach me by simply replying to this message.
