Disciplines of Study [DoS]  >  Acoustics  ]

A sound with a short envelope, usually with a less sharp attack than a click. Pulse is also called an impulse. With frequencies below about 20Hz, individual oscillations may be heard or sensed as slow pulses of pressure variation without pitch characteristics.
