Dear List Members, I am currently searching around for software to generate and sequence stimuli and collect data for music perception experiments. I thought I'd write to see what programs list members have used and found to be convenient. Ideally the software should have as many of the following features as possible: +be for PC rather than a Mac +drive MIDI devices +be able to time note onsets and offsets down to the millisecond +be able to randomize the order of stimuli anew for each subject +be able to collect discrete data points directly from the subject (e.g. reaction times, identification/discrimination responses) +be able to generate windows that can be viewed/used by the subject during the experiment (but that don't reveal too much of the structure of the experiment to the subject) Any suggestions gratefully received. I shall write again in about two weeks summarizing the responses I get. Thanks in advance for your co-operation, sincerely Matthew Royal P.S. I vaguely remember a similar request coming up on this list a few months ago, but do not recall seeing any follow-up to it. My apologies if this is covering old ground for some people. ******************************************************************************* Dr. Matthew Royal Assistant Professor Department of Theory and Composition Faculty of Music University of Western Ontario London, Ontario Canada N6A 3K7 Tel: (519) 661-2043 Fax: (519) 661-3531 E-mail: mroyal(at)
