TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of perturbation magnitude and voice F0 level on the pitch-shift reflex. AU - Liu, Hanjun. AU - Larson, Chuck. PY - 2007/12/1. Y1 - 2007/12/1. N2 - The purpose of the present study was to investigate the responsiveness of the pitch-shift reflex to small magnitude stimuli and voice fundamental frequency (F0) level. English speakers received pitch-shifted voice feedback (±10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 cents, 200 ms duration) during vowel phonations at a high and a low F0 level. Mean pitch-shift response magnitude increased as a function of pitch-shift stimulus magnitude, but when expressed as a percent of stimulus magnitude, declined from 100% with ±10 cents to 37% with ±50 cents stimuli. Response magnitudes were larger and latencies were shorter with a high F0 level (16 cents;130 ms) compared to a low F0 level (13 cents;152 ms). Data from the present study demonstrate that vocal response magnitudes are equal to small perturbation magnitudes, and they are larger and faster with ...
Pitch is used for different purposes in different languages. Many studies have shown that speakers of a non-tone languages are not so good at categorising and discriminating pitch patterns taken from a tone language as native speakers of the tone language or speakers of another tone language. This is however a very surprising finding given that speakers of a non-tone language also use pitch extensively in daily communication.. In a joint project with Patrick Wongs lab at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, we address the question of how different types of experience with pitch (lexical vs. post-lexical) shape how infants and adults process pitch in the brain. In particular, we investigate infants and adults sensitivity to pitch patterns and ability to track pitch patterns in Dutch and Cantonese at both the cortical and sub-cortical level. The pitch patterns of interest are rises and falls that are common in both Dutch and Cantonese but differ in certain phonetic dimensions. At the cortical ...
This article proposes a novel speech and sound segregation framework incorporating a technique for correcting a series of pitch periods based on particle filtering. The conventional pitch track correction method finds the peak locations of the autocorrelation functions to estimate the pitch period, and only the longest reliable pitch streak is used to correct unreliable pitch tracks. Especially in noisy environments, it is hard to find long and reliable pitch streaks, resulting in the degradation of the speech segregation performance. The proposed algorithm based on particle filtering considers all the reliable pitch streaks rather than the longest one and smoothly connects the scattered pitch streaks. To apply the particle filtering algorithm to pitch track correction, the importance weight computation to account for the degree of matchness of the found pitch to the individual spectro-temporal components is also proposed. The performance of the proposed method is evaluated by the results of ...
INTRODUCTION Congratulations on your purchase of a transonic electronic pest repeller. Pest is repelled using ultrasonic and sonic sounds to create a noisy, hostile environment for the pests and yet one that is Safe for human and domesticated animals. The sounds are based on "psychoacoustic jamming" principles. GETTING STARTED Plug the power cord into a 220 v Wall socket AC outlet. Set the PITCH setting to HIGH and switch the power ON. The front panel light will begin flashing which indicated that the unit is functioning properly. There should be two flashes per second approximately. PITCH SETTING Pitch refers to measure of frequency-not power. All pitch setting has approximately the same power output. In the HIGH pitch setting, the sounds are ultrasonic and are barely audible to humans. The HIGH pitch is recommended for rates bats, and insects, in the LOW pitch setting the ultrasonic sounds are retained along with additional lower frequency components that are audible to humans. This setting ...
Yo, Im fairly new to Ableton, with only about 50 hours of experience, so forgive me if this has a blatantly obvious solution. I have searched multiple times trying to figure out what options Ableton has for pitch automation and I cant find anything satisfactory. Most posts just refer to the Pitch Bend in the midi clip envelopes window, which, as far as I tell, is restricted to the pitch range of your midi controller (I have opened my controllers editor and theres no value box whatsoever to change the pitch bend range; another problem entirely), or if youre trying to pitch bend an audio clip, people refer to the Transposition Modulation in the envelopes window, which wont create a smooth bend for obvious reasons. I should say that I came from FL Studio before using Ableton and I absolutely love the way pitch is automated in midi clips there, because its just plain easy to make gorgeous slides. Is there anything similar to that? Possibly a plug-in somewhere?. To me, this is something that ...

Israel Nelken asked: , why is there such a pressure , to assume low-level representation (i.e. subcortical) of pitch? Dear Eli and List, the reason why physiological research focused on the exploration of subcortical mechanisms when looking for the pitch detector simply was that psychoacoustic data demanded a spectrotemporal mechanism. This ruled out the auditory cortex, because phase-coupling to pitch-relevant harmonics does not occur there. The highest level where it occurs is the auditory midbrain. During the past 15 years all necessary elements for pitch extraction have been found in the auditory midbrain (inferior colliculus, in the upper brainstem). Arrays of best-pitch neurons filter out the pitch frequency of complex sound signals, in the same way as arrays of best-frequency hair cells filter out spectral frequencies in the cochlea. Whereas the tuning properties of hair cells in the cochlea are mechanical and electrical, the tuning properties of pitch neurons are purely electrical. These ...
Individuals with congenital amusia have a lifelong history of unreliable pitch processing. Accordingly, they downweight pitch cues during speech perception and instead rely on other dimensions such as duration. We investigated the neural basis for this strategy. During fMRI, individuals with amusia (N=15) and controls (N=15) read sentences where a comma indicated a grammatical phrase boundary. They then heard two sentences spoken that differed only in pitch and/or duration cues, and selected the best match for the written sentence. Prominent reductions in functional connectivity were detected in the amusia group, between left prefrontal language-related regions and right hemisphere pitch-related regions, which reflected the between-group differences in cue weights in the same groups of listeners. Connectivity differences between these regions were not present during a control task. Our results indicate that the reliability of perceptual dimensions is linked with functional connectivity between ...
Another new favorite episode. Listened to the back end of it live and then twice in the car - its an exceptional episode that helped frame aspects of paranormality and the UFO experience in a very helpful manner & the dialogue above has been just as exceptional after reading through it twice on distant occasions. Oh wait, I forgot, it all happened at the same time. Time is delicious when you dont try to slice it.. I am reminded of so many things at once while listening to it as if encoded in the three way dialogue was another source of implicit information that compelled me to return to it, to discern from it all the many Fibonacci patterns, those rotating windmills of my mind. While the possibility of understanding the truly extravagant beauty of the minds quantum algorithms as interfacing layers of meaning derived from repetition & memory is enticing, I think sometimes it may be better to just live wrecklessly in the dream that is the minds virtual reality, a construct informed by our ...

Mark Ratzlaff edged out the competition between five talented filmmakers to take home the fifth annual MPPIA Short Film Award on December 4 at the 2011 Whistler Film Festival. Ratzlaffs pitch for the short film project Beauty Mark came out on top to secure the valuable industry award following five extremely well executed pitches. In addition to Ratzlaff, the four filmmakers who advanced from a wide field of applicants to pitch in Whistler were: Brianne Nord-Steward (No Return), Amber Ripley (Mermaid in a Jar), Ana Valine (Happiless) and Liz Van Allen Cairns (Withering Heights). "Our five finalist directors all delivered compelling pitches for projects that show real promise," said jury moderator Andrew Williamson, Head of Production and Digital Media at Lark Productions. "This was not an easy decision, but ultimately the jury agreed that the combination of Mark Ratzlaffs script, vision and pitch best articulated the story he intends to tell with his short film." "We look forward to seeing ...
Feedback signals from the primary auditory cortex (A1) can shape the receptive field properties of neurons in the ventral division of the medial geniculate body (MGBv). However, the behavioral significance of corticothalamic modulation is unknown. The aim of this study was to elucidate the role of this descending pathway in the perception of complex sounds. We tested the ability of adult female ferrets to detect the presence of a mistuned harmonic in a complex tone using a positive conditioned go/no-go behavioral paradigm, before and after the input from layer VI in A1 to MGBv was bilaterally and selectively eliminated using chromophore-targeted laser photolysis. MGBv neurons were identified by their short latencies and sharp tuning curves. They responded robustly to harmonic complex tones, and exhibited an increase in firing rate and temporal pattern changes when one frequency component in the complex tone was mistuned. Injections of fluorescent microbeads conjugated with a light-sensitive ...

A recent note from Valter Ciocca says: In support of Als point that pitch can be affected by grouping, Chris Darwin and I found that the pitch of a complex could be changed by mistuning one of its low-numbered components only when the mistuned component was grouped with the remaining components of the complex. This is a very nice result. Unfortunately, some other studies do not agree with the conclusion. In 1984 I did mistuned harmonic experiments with brief tones, using a 200 Hz complex tone with 7 harmonics, except that the fourth harmonic was mistuned. Experiment 1 found the amount of mistuning required to hear out the mistuned harmonic as a separate entity. For a tone duration of 40 ms this threshold mistuning was 22 Hz (2.75 % of the correct harmonic frequency of 800 Hz). For mistuning less than 22 Hz the complex was a single entity and the mistuned harmonic did not pop out. Experiment 2 measured the shift in the virtual pitch caused by mistuning of the fourth harmonic. (The virtual ...

Continued improvements in wire bonding technology have resulted in new packages with lead counts of up to 304 leads. ASICS and VLSICS are increasing the lead counts and the density of the new packages. This results in die pad sizes, lead widths and the center to center spacing (pad pitch) becoming smaller and smaller. Lead pitches are also being reduced. However, due to the wire approaching the lead at a very low angle, the lead pitch is typically not considered a critical capillary design consideration. ...
When a word is being emphasized upon during speech, we tend to raise our pitch. Studies of voice modulation and intonations have shown that the pitch can change the meaning of the word. So, it is not always what is said, but how it is said, find researchers of a new study appearing in the latest issue of Science.

Yes, you can trust that, but only insofar as it applies to YOU because so much about theremins has to do with personal taste and preference. " - Coalport. A valid comment, in terms of subjective matters - what one "likes" or "dislikes" in particular... But from a "technical" perspective (as you often rightly declare with regard to pitch) a player is either "on key" or "of key" and the degree of "error" is measurable - How much such "error" bothers the player or listener, and whether this "error" ever imparts something "positive" would, as I see it, fall into "subjective" -. And this is where I sometimes have difficulty - Yes, I have my subjective preferences.. But my test instruments shouldnt have! ;-) ..

A recording method whereby an inorganic resist made of an incomplete oxide of a transition metal is formed as a film onto a substrate and a latent image corresponding to pits is formed onto the inorganic resist by exposure. The exposure is performed by a laser beam whose intensity has been modulated by a pulse signal whose pulse height decreases in a rear portion in a length direction of the pit, thereby forming a format of a track pitch smaller than a recording beam diameter (track pitch/exposure beam diameter=0.333 to 0.833).

NEW YORK -- Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte was forced to leave Thursdays 3-2 loss to the Mariners after 79 pitches with a tight left trapezius muscle, which spans the neck, shoulders and upper back area.. Pettitte and manager Joe Girardi held out hope that he wont have to miss his next start.. Pettitte appeared to stiffen and wince after throwing his final pitch, a swinging strikeout of Kyle Seager for the second out of the fifth inning. Girardi dashed to the mound and held a fairly lengthy conversation with Pettitte, who shielded his mouth with his glove. Pettitte jogged off the field and was relieved by Shawn Kelley.. "Obviously, Im realistic," Pettitte said. "I know how these guys are. I asked them if I could stay out there and try to get through it out there. Im hoping its a spasm and it settles down.". Girardi -- no stranger to injury updates in a season that has already been filled by them -- remained hopeful as well.. "I dont think Andys [injury] is too bad," Girardi said. "His ...

Definition of vocal pitch accuracy in a melodic context.. Abstract : If we easily categorize sung performances as "in tune" or "out of tune", it is not so evident to explicitly describe on which criteria our evaluation is based. This presentation reports recent work on pitch accuracy perception in a melodic context. The results allow to refine the notion of pitch accuracyand therefore to design objective tools for the evaluation of singer quality. This lecture will be in English.. ...
Bumgarner suffered a broken finger in spring training, resulting in a second consecutive abbreviated season after a long track record of durability. His 19.8% strikeout rate last season was his lowest since 2010 while his 7.8% walk rate was a career worst. The combination of those two, his K-BB%, was his worst this decade. More troubling is the fact that Bumgarners fastball, which was once a quality pitch for him, abandoned him last year. By run values, his fastball was nearly as bad for him last year as it was good for him in 2015. The velocity on the pitch has been consistent the past three seasons, but a 91-mph fastball is league average now. He still managed to finish with a solid ERA thanks to his ability to pitch out of trouble with his secondary pitches. The risk is more health than skill, because Bumgarner has shown he can still pitch reasonably well without the fastball. While no longer an ace, Bumgarner is still a good piece to have on your roster ...
The graphs might be a little bit overkill, but its cool all the different ways you can visualize the this simple data. The number of pitches is distributed normally with a skew left. This skew occurs because there are instances when the pitcher has a bad day and gets pulled really early. To account for this, I excluded any outing that didnt have more than 50 pitches. We will consider these as rare events, which we shouldnt try to use in our prediction. The idea of the game is to hit the exact pitch count, and this would preclude a rare event from being factored in. I also used the median number of pitches instead of the average number of pitches for the same reason. We want to consistently pick numbers which are the most likely to get hit, not to try to predict every game.. The idea of using the median over the mean is important when there is a skew to the normal distribution of the data. This is important for something like income. There is a huge skew for incomes across the entire US ...

On Wednesday, our groups began working together. I worked with journalist Garth Haley, who also had studied physics. He is very interested in technology, and we worked very well together. But before we coulc actually create our pitch, everybody was asked to think intensively about potential users of our technology. That is, we defined a few examplary user profiles, which were to be included into the pitch. I would have preferred to work on my presentation - lots of things to put into it, but the emphasis was set that the user should be in the centre. I thought, that this very specific targeting of concrete made-up users would be quite demeaning to our pitch clients - I remembered the saying "great minds talk about ideas, medium minds about events, small minds about people" (although that came from another context...). But of course, I understood that it was important to show that we understand the "customers", the clients for which we would make the product. And so we went along and developed ...
