many thanks for your infos. the link you gave me helps a lot, but how can I get more informtaion about the lookup tables you mentioned? I have never used them before, so they are still quite a mystery.
One thing you might like to look at is the Fletcher Munsen curve. There isn't
hard mathematical relationship between perceived amplitude (loudness) and
frequency, it's more of a biological and psychoacoustic effect, and somewhat
subjective between listeners.
The Pd solution to this is to use lookup tables to scale amplitude, a bit less
fiddly than setting up a piecewise function.
