You sure can't tell by listening to 1/2" diameter cell phone speakers or $5.00 earbuds.


It sounds to me like you need to take a music appreciation course. Check with your local community colleges.

Lol... You don't know our ironpony. He needs 101 in music, and after he starts with that topic there will be 1M questions about the basics. Beethoven or good speakers wouldn't be the answers...

I am a musician from a family of musicians. I play the violin and the saxophone. I have a 1000 cd albums of classical music..

Sometimes something will come up on the radio with an instrument that I’m just not sure of since the range overlaps. For example, the viola can play in the violin range just not as high. Even the double bass can sometimes sound like a viola. The timbre is different, but sometimes its very very similar.

And the same exists for wind instruments, and for percussion.

I completely understand. Perhaps people here are not musicians and don’t understand how similar instruments in the same tonal range can be now and then. And if you throw in some instrument from another part of the world---well good luck.

I know of no app that can do this for you, but it sounds like a good one for composers.
