Either from a Tristan Murail lecture or interview — I can’t remember exactly which, — I read about David Wessel’s Fourier analyses of (the sounding notes of) several instruments while he was at IRCAM. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find traces of a database of these analyses anywhere.
This said, I then remembered that Orchids included a SOL database explorer of its audio descriptors, but I can’t remember if these included spectral/frequency profiles… Is there such a database of instruments’ spectral/frequency profiles of SOL or TinySOL available somewhere, somehow? Or even, are there any other such databases currently available?
Here’s an example of what I’m referring to as “spectral/frequency profile”:
The example above was taken from a 2012 article, here: Music in Our Ears…
Any hints or insights on this issue would be most welcome.
All the best,
