re: If by tone you mean notes, notes are named frequencies. The data you get back from the WebAudio API is the frequencies picked up by the microphone...

By tone, I meant tone: which makes a C note from violin and piano distinct.

However, I got what you meant. Nice and creative work!

Notes are just particular frequencies that are given a name. In any case, the tone you're using is a bit off.

Traditionally, that's referred to as timbre. It's the volume of specific frequencies in a note's harmonic series that account for differences in timbre in pitched instruments. Here's a great video explaining how that works.
