Yet another software, not for auditory modeling but for performing psychoacoustical experiments, is "psylab". Detection, discrimination, and matching experiments are currently supported and a number of paradigms such as N-AFC, n-up-m-down, weighted up-down etc. are readily available. The user only needs to implement/program the stimuli herself, in plain Matlab. psylab can be found at Regards, Martin On 12.03.2012 21:35, Richard F.
