Sample text

This would suggest that if a sufficiently powerful yet high-quality reproduction system is available, the correct tonal balance when playing a good recording can be obtained simply by setting the volume control to the correct level. This is indeed the case. A further consideration is that many musical instruments, as well as the human voice, change timbre with the level and there is only one level that sounds correct for the timbre. Audio systems with a more modest specification would have to resort to the use of tone controls to achieve a better tonal balance at lower SPL.

10 shows an uncoiled basilar membrane with the apex on the left so that the usual logarithmic frequency scale can be applied. 10(a). The vibration of the membrane in sympathy with a single frequency cannot be localized to an infinitely small area, and nearby areas are forced to vibrate at the same frequency with an amplitude that decreases with distance. Note that the envelope is asymmetrical because the membrane is tapering and because of frequency-dependent losses in the propagation of vibrational energy down the cochlea.

10(b), the position of maximum displacement will also change. As the basilar membrane is continuous, the position of maximum displacement is infinitely variable, allowing extremely good pitch discrimination of about one-twelfth of a semitone, which is determined by the spacing of hair cells. In the presence of a complex spectrum, the finite width of the vibration envelope means that the ear fails to register energy in some bands when there is more energy in a nearby band. Within those areas, other frequencies are mechanically excluded because their amplitude is insufficient to dominate the local vibration of the membrane.
