It has previously been found that when a single low-numbered harmonic of a complex tone is progressively mistuned, for mistunings up to about 3%, the pitch of the complex changes in the direction of the mistuning but for larger mistunings (by about 8%) the pitch returns to its original value. This result is compatible with the operation of a mechanism such as a graded harmonic sieve, which can reject from the calculation of pitch those frequency components that are implausibly distant from a… CONTINUE READING
