Hallo Dan,

May I ask you to perform something like cepstrum or autocorrelation with the
original data or to perform (after one way rectification) inverse FT or just
once again FT and get a much less periodic result?

Maybe I was not entirely wrong within


My piano generates nearly pure tones.
A guitar generates many overtones.

Sincerely Yours,
