Voices (and not the kind in your head)
I've never heard it called a fourier note. I must amend my earlier post, where I said only harmonics are generated. The other frequencies are overtones of the fundamental 440Hz. Overtones are made up of harmonics, which are integral multiples of the fundamental, plus non_integral multiples or inharmonic overtones.They are (as you mentioned) lower in amplitude. If you were to input those frequencies to a spectrum analyzer (which plots freq versus amplitude), you would see a nice graph of that relationship.
I have heard that our brain may believe it is hearing the fundamental, when only overtones are present. I haven't personally tried this but do know other musicians who have confirmed this.
