Dear Jen, What I mean with attack transient is the first part of a musical sound (from zero to the maximum intensity), and with decay transient the last part of a musical sound (from maximum intensity to the zero intensity). Also, if you produce a musical sound with an attack and a decay (i.e. both of 2 sec. of duration), without the sustain period you can compare the perceived duration of the two parts (attack and decay). Grazie a te Massimo >Dear Massimo, > >I know several that relate to compared perception of duration, but I'm not >sure what you mean by duration of attack and decay. Might you clarify a bit? > >Grazie, >Always, >Jen > %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% Massimo Grassi Department of General Psychology via Venezia 8 - 35131 - Padova - Italy Phone +39 +49 +8276928 (lab) Fax +39 +49 +8276600 %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
