Iterative

Additional Glossary Terms  ]

A rapid succession of pulses (or impulses), such as a roll on a snare drum or cymbal. Iterative sounds may form a continuum between the briefest of attack sounds and continuous sustained sounds. Downward transposition will often change iterative sounds from being perceived as clearly pitched to being perceived as rhythmical entities.
