But such sound is non-existent in a natural environment, and this pitch percept is weaker and slower than that caused by natural sound with resolved harmonics. I dont understand why sounds with unresolved harmonics are 'non-existent' in nature. Speech signals have many high harmonics that are not resolved by the auditory system. Ofcourse they probably dont contribute much to pitch perception but to say that unresolved harmonics dont exist in a natural environment is wrong.
