Entries found for search: frequency masking

frequency masking : An audio artifact which occurs when several sounds are mixed, all which occur in the same frequency range. This happens because human ears tend to blend simultaneous sounds into a single, composite sound. When several instruments or other sounds emphasize similar frequencies, those frequencies accumulate and can either become too dominant or can cause one sound to mask another. Also called band masking or auditory masking.
