Experiments are described to test the concept of dominance with respect to Repetition Pitch. In the experiments a test signal was used consisting of a low-frequency band up to 500 Hz, a centre-frequency band of 700 up to 1400 Hz, and a high-frequency band starting at 2050 Hz. These bands were filled up with noise added to its repetition after a fixed delay. It was found that the low-frequency band was dominant in the perception of Repetition Pitch (corresponding to the reciprocal value of the delay time) for the range up to 100 Hz, the centre-frequency band for the pitch range of 150 to 350 Hz, and the high-frequency band for pitch values above 700 Hz.

The centre-frequency band tends to dominate the pitch sensation as long as its loudness level exceeds a minimum absolute level of about 10 dB SL irrespective of the level of other frequency bands in the signal.

Evidence is provided that the strength of the pitch sensation is an adequate parameter determining the dominance with respect to pitch.
