Re: frequency to mel formula
Do you have a feel for why the mel scale is used instead of, say,
Bark or ERB scales?

On the Wikipedia page
a formula for computing frequency in terms of mels is given as:
mel = log(1 + fr/700)*1127 .
It is easily inverted to fr = 700*exp(mel/1127 - 1) .
My question is: Where do these formulas come from? I.e., I need
a journal reference for these formulas.
