Definition

The residue pitch is the low pitch heard when a group of frequency components in a complex tone is perceived as a coherent whole. For a harmonic complex tone, the residue pitch is usualy close to the pitch of the fundamental component, but that component does not have to be present for a residue pitch to be heard.

Synonyms

Also known as virtual pitch, low pitch and periodicity pitch.
