The effect of vibrato on response time in determining the pitch relationship of violin tones

Abstract

This experiment investigates the effect of vibrato on response time in determining the pitch relationship of two successive violin tones. The result may provide insight into many musicians’ impression that vibrato can be used to mask inaccurate intonation since the preliminary data indicate that listeners require more time to determine the mean pitch of a vibrato tone.
