is the quality of a musical note or sound or tone that distinguishes
different types of sound production, such as voices or musical instruments. The
physical characteristics of sound that mediate the perception of timbre include
spectrum and envelope. Timbre is also known in psychoacoustics as tone quality
or tone color. For example, timbre is what, with a little practice, people use to

instruments are playing notes at the same pitch and loudness.
