    Ipertono
    Qualsiasi frequenza discreta di uno spettro che non sia una armonica fondamentale o parziale. Esso può essere armonico o inarmonico. Tuttavia, nella serie armonica, il primo inpertono corrisponde alla seconda armonica. Sul piano percettivo, un ipertono è qualsiasi altezza componente un suono complesso come in un suono di organo, violino o corno (Fonte - Barry Truax - Handbook for Acoustic Ecology CD-ROM Edition.

    Overtone
    N’importe quelle fréquence discrète d’un spectre autre que l’harmonique fondamentale et les partiels est souvent nommée overtones. Les overtones peuvent donc êtres hamoniques ou inharmoniques. Toutefois, il convient de noter que, dans la série harmonique, le premier overtones correspond au second harmonique. Sur le plan perceptif, un overtones est n’importe quel composant de hauteur d’un son complexe tel que celui produit par un orgue, un violon ou un (...)

    Sobretono (Overtone)
    Cualquier componente de frecuencia discreto en un espectro, mas allá de los armónicos fundamentales y los parciales, son frecuentemente llamados sobretonos; es decir, los sobretonos pueden ser armónicos o inarmónicos. Sin embargo, debe destacarse que el primer sobretono corresponde al segundo armónico de la serie de los armónicos. Perceptivamente, un sobretono es cualquier componente de altura en un sonido complejo, tal como el que es producido por un órgano, un violín (...)

    Any discrete frequency component in a spectrum other than the fundamental harmonics and partials are often called overtones; that is, overtones may be harmonic or inharmonic. However, it should be noted that the first overtone corresponds to the second harmonic in the harmonic series. Perceptually, an overtone is any pitch component in a complex sound, such as that produced by an organ, violin or horn. (Source: Barry Truax - Handbook for Acoustic Ecology CD-ROM Edition.
