“小脇 人間の耳は周波数特性を聴いているわけではなくて、空気の動きを鼓膜で聴いているんですね。周波数特性は、空気の動きを分析した一部の結果でしかない。FFT(高速フーリエ変換。信号を正弦波の周波数に分解して周波数特性を可視化する)はご存じですか? ―― はい。 小脇 あれで周波数特性を計測しようとすると、低い周波数ほど波長が長いので、ポイントを多く取って分解能を上げなければならない。たとえば4万4100Hzでサンプリングされたデータの3万2768ポイントを取ると、0.7秒位の区間の周波数特性を計算することになる。パーカッションの音の違いは、数m/s程度の波形の中で表現されるわけですが、それを平均するとスポイルされてしまう。過渡特性(時間的な推移で音が変わる)を持った本当の楽器の音というのは、そのデータではわからないんです。”
