Thank you for the clarifications, and sorry for replying with such a 
delay to a thread I started myself...

Ok so I guess that's why the pitch track's amplitude can be greater than 
the sound's total amplitude.

But correct me if I am wrong: with sigmund~ you can't get the "total" 
amplitude of a pitch track in a trivial way, can you? You would have to 
"manually" sum up the track's components' amplitudes, right? (well in a 
sense that _is_ trivial)
