In our everyday lives, there are usually many sounds occurring simultaneously at any given time. The waveform that reaches each of our two ears is actually the sum of the waves that have been created by all the individual sound-producing events. This means that the listener’s eardrum undergoes a complex motion in which the contributions of the individual sound-producing events are not distinguished from one another. Yet the goal of perception in natural environments is to build representations of the individual sounds, and through them, representations of the separate events–such as impacts, dragging, tearing, blowing, ringing, and oscillation–that have created them.
5 Using Decibels to Measure Dynamic Range We end our discussion of the decibel with its use as a measure of dynamic range. The dynamic range of an audio system is the ratio between the softest and loudest sounds reproducible by the system. Dynamic range is usually expressed in decibels since the decibel is a relative measure to begin with. In the analog domain, dynamic range is determined as the ratio between the loudest distortion-free sound that the system can produce and the level of the noise floor inherent in the system (the sound produced when no signal is present).
So any transformation of the signal that blurs the properties will favor integration of the signal. 3. 1 Harmonic Relations (Principle of Harmonicity) Let us first discuss the organization of acoustic components that are present at the same time. These are discussed in Chapter 3 of  and examples are given on the audio CD of . We start with the principle of harmonicity. One of the most important methods used by ASA applies only to sounds with periodic waveforms, such as the human voice or the sound of a violin.
