Temporal asymmetry can have a pronounced effect on the perception of a sinusoid. For instance, if a sinusoid is amplitude modulated by a decaying exponential that restarts every 50 ms, (a damped sinusoid) listeners report a two-component percept: a tonal component corresponding to the carrier and a drumming component corresponding to the envelope modulation period. When the amplitude modulation is reversed in time (a ramped sinusoid) the perception changes markedly; the tonal component… CONTINUE READING
