Partials, harmonics, and equalization (EQ): Digital Audio Foundations

In preparation for discussing EQ, Matt gives an overview of how frequencies work in practice. Nearly every sound is made up of many "ingredient" frequencies called partials. Depending on the mathematical relationship between these frequencies, these partials may be harmonic or non-harmonic. An oscilloscope and a spectrum analyzer each give clues about the partials in a sound, and the shape of the wave and the recipe of partials define each other.
