I am building a work-in-progress chart of tone families. Link to Tone Wheel This is intended to be a graphic representation of tone families, similar to a color wheel. I'm looking for community input as to various unique tones, and where they fall on the wheel. As the information comes in, the above chart will evolve into a useful chart supported by comments made here. I seeded the prototype with basic tone families, i.e. "SVT" with "SWR" on the opposite side of the wheel. Please post opinions about: Family Voice Coloration Dirt For starters, I have the Demeter in the middle as Clean voicing (neutral), Clean coloration (neutral), and no Grind/Dirt. The SWR voicing is very Scooped, the SVT something else. The VTRM tone is placed very close to the SVT, but the RBI is estimated closer to the scooped SWR sound. If the GK tone is unique, it can occupy a new degree point on the wheel. It would be helpful to start with the extremes to first establish the outer wheel. The in-between'ers (Genz-Benz, Peavey, Littlemark, Eden, ??) can be placed where they fall. All input is welcome.
