Samenvatting

The influence of duration on the virtual pitch of complex tones was measured using an absolute identification paradigm. If performance with two-tone complexes is expressed in terms of a single central frequency-coding noise function, this function is found to depend on duration in about the same way as the pure-tone difference limen function. The function is further found to be a reasonably good predictor of pitch identification performance with multitone complexes. Another experimental finding was that subjects tend to switch to the analytic mode of pitch perception when complex tones are shortened (i.e., they tend to hear the spectral pitches instead of the virtual ones). A third finding was that with simultaneous complex tones the degradation of each pitch percept depends not only on duration and harmonic order of the tone but also on the harmonic order of the other tone.
