Thread Name: tone vs pitch
Subject: RE: tone vs pitch
I tried to make it clear that the writer was using the words 'tone' and 'pitch' in an arbitrary manner, without regard for the proper definitions. There are no common terms for the sound he was describing. Since the man was a physicist specializing in sound, I assume he knew what he was saying when he asserted that the sounds do not occur in nature.
