I play the double bass, electric bass, most brass instruments - with a preference for the low - and some other instruments, as well as sing (choir, á capella and solo). I know a fair bit of music theory and arranging, as well as some musical acoustics. I have a huge crush on musical instruments in general. My main focus is jazz and related genres, but I find myself in other contexts now and then.

comment Instruments that challenge your ear
Playing all chromatic notes (by bending) on a diatonic harmonica sure fits the question criteria IMO.

comment Why some musicians insist on naming notes using odd numbers?
Embarrassingly I reallize I didn't read the explanation you wrote for Csus11. I don't think I've ever seen that notation for what I would have written as C9sus4 (or possibly Gm7/C depending on context and intent) and thus assumed a C11 was intended. (On the other hand, as you know, the third is often omitted when voicing a C11.) Sorry to bother you. :-)

+1. I would have written C11 without the 'sus' since the 11 is an extension and not a suspended note.

comment Is there a highest note representable on sheet music without using an octave higher notation?
A bit off track but for completeness I'd just like to add that the 15ma notation can be used when 8va isn't enough.

comment Is it okay to have number of notes in a bar that doesn't conform with the time signature?
+1 Perhaps also add the possible anacrusis complementary final "bar" (as discussed under Bob's answer) as an additional case where you legitimately may find a mismatching number of beats to the time signature.

comment What are the differences between tone, note and pitch?
"Note" can also refer to notation, right? E.g. "Hey trombones; the third note in bar 15 should be emphasized!".

comment Harmonic Transpose
What is it that you are transposing? A recording (such as a .wav file)? Sheet music? A chord progression? And what do you mean by harmonic transpose? Could you give an example?

From a parent-child perspective you could also ask at Parenting.

comment Setting up Distortion on an Amp
Isn't the "Volume" knob the gain of this amp; so you can crank that up high to get distorsion, and adjust the output volume with the "Master" knob?

comment Which are the ~15 most common time signatures?
@Valentin: I suppose you've also looked at what time signatures are commonly readily available in other metronome apps, DAWs, and music notation software? These should give an indication on how other software producers have reasoned.

comment Which are the ~15 most common time signatures?
@Valentin: Why don't you let the user choose the number of beats and the note value separately, or at least have that as an option? That would open for greater flexibility. (I suppose you've read this wikipedia page?

comment what is causing this buzzing sound on my A string
@JCP: Since the third partial of A is the tone E it's actually very natural for the A string to start ringing (with the frequency of the higher E) when the high E string is strum. You can equally try it on a piano by slowly (in order to not hit the string with the hammer but releasing the damper on that string) pressing down any key and then quickly hit and release the key an octave and a fifth above. You will then hear the high fifth ringing on the undamped string.

comment What does it mean for a synth to be “dirty”?
@JCP: I believe you've got the alto sax graph in place of the clarinet. (The clarinet, by construction, only has odd numbered harmonics. From the clarinet graph in the link, I guess that is not entirely true though; at least not for C 261.62 Hz where the 4th, 6th, 8th etc harmonics are present in the graph.)
