I am making a demo for my Hearing Science course on auditory object perception. I would like to create a demo that I heard S. McAdams present during his talk at berkeley a few years ago, but I don't know the details of the signals. I recall that he played the even and odd harmonics of a harmonic complex and modulated separately the the even and odd harmnics. The odd harmonics sounded like a "clarinet" while the even harmonics sounded like a "soprano singer". Does anyone know the thr modulation freq & rate as well as the ramps (attack and release times), fundamental frequ, phase and rolloff that produce a salient demonstration? Thanks, Bert Schlauch
