Hello everyone! I have been looking into sinusoidal analysis in Puredata recently. I'm looking into sigmund~ and have a question about its sinusoidal tracking. In the PD-Help patch, the descript writes "You can ask for sinusoidal peaks in decreasing order of amplitude or arranged into maximally continuous tracks for resynthesis".

I understand that giving sigmund~ the peak option with -npeak will allow me to access the loudest n partials from loudest to weakest. What I don't understand is the tracks option with -npeak. What does maximally continuous mean? How are the partials arranged (by strength, by index?)

I hope I have phrased my question clearly enough and thank you in advance for reading this!
