Response to Amerigo Vespucci (Original post)

16. I did my own analysis of it

And I'm pretty sure he said coons. What I'm 99.9999999% sure of is the first sound of that word is not a "p".

I've spent endless hours editing and mixing live multitrack recordings for band videos etc. I can't look at a waveform display and point out every subtle variation in vocal sounds, but I do have a sharp eye for what we call plosives and sibilants, most commonly p,b and s sounds.

Learning how to quickly scan a vocal track for these sounds do I can check for problems and address them saves me a lot of time.

I looked that 911 tape over real good and I'll be damned if I see a "p" at the start of the word they say is "punks"
