>> (Divenyi:) A psychophysicist would be extremely >> indebted to anyone coming out with a scale along which delta-first moments, >> or cepstral coefficients of a certain order, would be equally (or at least >> comparably) discriminable. >(McAdams:) Ah but then we open up the can of worms about relations between >Fechnerian, Stevensian (and perhaps any number of other) scales!! Why >doesn't a scale derived from frequency jnds look like a mel scale and >neither look like the musical pitch scale? A good point!...
