Three listeners matched the pitch of a simple tone to that of narrow- band complex signals having different phases. The pitch matches were independent of the phases; the frequency of the simple tone approximately equaled the center of gravity of the power spectrum of each complex signal. This result is inconsistent with a model that calculates the pitch of a waveform as the average of instantaneous frequency weighted by the envelope of the waveform.
