#beginquote# Went to google and typed in "timbre definition" and got these answers at a site. Tone color. It's the quality of sound that make one instrument or voice sound different from another. For example, a flute has a different timbre than a clarinet. How the ear identifies and classifies sound. Example: the timbre of the same note played by two different instruments (flute and tuba) will not be the same. That attribute of auditory sensation by which a listener discriminates between two sounds of similar loudness and pitch, but of different tonal quality. Timbre depends primarily upon the spectrum of the stimulus, but it also depends upon the waveform, the sound pressure, the frequency location of the spectrum, and the temporal characteristics of the stimulus The character or quality of a sound that distinguishes one instrument, voice, or other sound source from another. You couldn't have done this yourself? #endquote#
