- The orange on the chart below represents the fundamental frequencies for each specified instrument.
- The yellow represents the harmonic frequencies for the indicated instrument.
- At the bottom of the chart below the keyboard, you will find a correlation between various sound qualities and their matching frequencies. This section is helpful when you’re trying to minimize background noises or maximize the quality of a recording.
