Dear Superk,

there is a musical tone model called the "sound object". It's a general scheme for sound description and was created by Pierre Schaeffer, a french composer. Pierre Schaeffer worked in a sound lab and researched on this topic in order to find a sound description scheme that is independent from subjective hearing experience. He describes the "reduced listening", a listening mode, which is hard to learn but enables you to describe the sound in a very general way. It deals with terms like "mass", "grain", "sharpness", ...
Unfortunately it is quite hard to find some good information on the internet. So, if you are interested in Pierre Scheffer's Sound Objects, just let me know.

Best wishes from Mannheim, Germany,

Subject: rule about musical tone's shape

Dear List,

Are there some common shapes of musical tone, that is, relative amplitude
of tone's harmonics, especially of instruments? I wanna use such knowledge
to design a musical tone model. Some good references will be greatly appreciated!
