Abstract [en]

The perception of modal and falsetto registers was analyzed in a material consisting of a total of 104 vowel sounds sung by 13 choir singers, 52 sung in modal register, and 52 in falsetto register. These vowel sounds were classified by 16 expert listeners in a forced choice test and the number of votes for modal was compared to the voice source parameters: (1) closed quotient (Q(closed)), (2) level difference between the two lowest source spectrum partials (H1-H2), (3) AC amplitude, (4) maximum flow declination rate (MFDR), and (5) normalized amplitude quotient (NAQ, AC amplitude/MFDR* fundamental frequency). Tones with a high value of Q(closed) and low values of H1-H2 and of NAQ were typically associated with high number of votes for modal register, and vice versa, Q(closed) showing the strongest correlation. Some singer subjects produced tones that could not be classified as either falsetto or modal register, suggesting that classification of registers is not always feasible.
