Re: comparison of envelope rise times in orchestral instruments

Perhaps you mean John Grey and Andy Moorer's work?  As in:

John M. Grey and James A. Moorer.
Perceptual evaluations of synthesized musical instrument tones.
Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 62:454-462, 1977.

Hello all,

I've been looking for some time, and failed miserably, for an old (30 yrs+) article - in JASA I think - which has graphs for each orchestral 'family' of envelope rise (attack) times across the entire range of each instrument.

I'm afraid I can't provide any more detail than that. 

Does anyone have the reference perchance? Or something more recent perhaps?

Many thanks,
