Quick physics: High notes versus High frequencies

Today we do a quick physics tip to discuss the difference between a low NOTE, and low FREQUENCIES, and how they are different.

Sometimes you want a low note, but only keep the high frequencies – that’s not the same as playing a high note, even if you keep the same frequencies. Like, imagine playing a really low techno brass bass, but then only keep the high frequencies. It’s a subtlety that’s not always obvious!
