    Abstract

    A new method for the analysis of inharmonic instrumental tones is presented. The method exploits an equation derived from the well-know inharmonic series equation, where the inharmonicity coefficient is balanced with the frequencies and numbers of any two partials extracted from a pseudo-harmonic series. A serial search for increasingly deviating spectral peaks is aided with the integrated refinement of increasingly reliable inharmonicity coefficient and fundamental frequency estimates. This firsthand approach to the problem of evaluating inharmonic spectra brings about an unprecedented level of simplicity, efficiency and accuracy.
