sound emitted by a source that is dependent upon its frequency
the high or low of the music
Sound results from the vibration of a source such as a string or drum head. The pitch depends on the rapidity of the vibrations. Rapid vibrations produce higher notes than slower ones. The most common pitch now is based on A=440 vibrations per second. This is "la" or the second space up on the treble staff. In past years the standard pitch was usually lower (Verdi preferred A=432).
the highness or lowness of sound based on frequency of vibration
The subjective sensation produced by various frequencies. The higher the frequency, the higher the perceived pitch; however, frequency is not linearly related to pitch. See also 'Concert Pitch'.

The highness/lowness of a sound or tone.
The highness or lowness of one's voice.
Pitch is that attribute of auditory sensation in terms of which sounds may be ordered on a musical scale

The perceived quality of sound that is most closely related to frequency, but is also influenced by sound level. The position of a note on a musical scale.
Frequency is what controls the pitch.
The vibratory frequency of a person, object, or place. It carries with it the same essence and meaning as "signature vibration."
Tone: A function of frequency.
Another term for sound frequency. Higher pitches are higher frequency sounds. Q - R
The aspect of frequency and intensity that determines a sound's position in a musical scale.
The sound of a particular note. When pitch is referred to, it's usually in reference to being "on" or "off" pitch. "On pitch" means the singer is singing in tune. "Off pitch" means the singer is either flat or sharp.
The perceived auditory sensation of sounds expressed in terms of high or low frequency stimulus of the sound.
the perceived frequency of a sound, commonly notated as "C" "D," etc.
Control Changes the tempo (Speed) of the music. See also Key Control.
rhymes with witch): how high or low a sound is
Another word for the frequency of a sound wave.
a term used to describe what we perceive the frequency of a sound to be. For instance, the first pitch below, A3, has a frequency of 440 HZ (cycles per second. The second pitch, E5, has a higher frequency (660 HZ), and so we say it sounds "higher." The third pitch, A1, sounds "lower" because the frequency (55 HZ) is much lower than the first pitch. Three pitches: A3 , E4, A1. click to play
the highness or lowness of a musical note; different pitches have different frequencies
Pitch in music is the note that sounds. On the organ, pitch does not always correspond to the key which plays the pitch. For more information on pitch and organs, see the Pitch Levels page.
is determined by frequency or number of hertz; the higher the frequency of the sound waves, the higher the pitch sounds to our ears. The lower the frequency, the lower the pitch sounds. A standard musical pitch is middle “A” on the piano = 440 Hz. (cycles per second).
The specific quality of a sound that makes it a recognizable tone. Pitch defines the location of a tone in relation to others, thus giving it a sense of being high or low.
To pitch or pitch-shift means to change the frequency of the tone. This can be done, for instance, using the "Time Processor" from MAGIX.
The highness or the lowness of the notes.
Highness or lowness of notes eg a high pitched squeal or a low pitched rumble. A whistle or piccolo plays at a high pitch while a double bass, bassoon or tuba plays low pitched notes.

How high versus low a person's voice sounds. Men typically speak in lower pitches than do women. This is due to men's larger larynx and vocal folds.
The tone of a sound, which generally is determined by the sound's frequency. A high-pitched sound has a higher frequency; a low-pitched sound has a lower frequency.
A qualitative dimension of hearing correlated with the frequency of the sound waves that constitute the stimulus. Higher frequencies yield higher pitches. See also loudness, timbre.
The highness or lowness of a tone, as determined by the number of vibrations in the sound.
Pitch is the perceived fundamental frequency of a sound. While the actual fundamental frequency can be precisely determined through physical measurement, it may differ from the perceived pitch because of overtones, or partials, in the sound. The human auditory perception system may also have trouble distinguishing frequency differences between notes under certain circumstances.
To a good approximation the perceived pitch of a sine wave is directly related to the frequency of the sound.
