I beg to differ with Pierre but there should be a difference between predictive sounds (such as a glissando, or even Morse code) and totally random onsets. One of your contributors mentioned multiple sounds, and there too, there is a matter of attention (cocktail party effect) and illusion (alternating octaves) where there has been some research, although not terribly much in the way of discrete event counting. Diana Deutsch's work is of note. Rebecca Mercuri.
