With the aim of augmenting auditory sensation by tactile stimuli, we investigated cross-modal relationships between the two modalities, focusing on frequency. The results showed that frequency consonance between tactile and audio stimuli depends on the relationship between harmonics, in a manner similar to auditory waves, but with broader peaks.
