The effect of stimulus duration on absolute identification of musical pitch was measured in a single-interval 12-alternative forced-choice task. Stimuli consisted of pure tones selected randomly on each trial from a set of 60 logarithmically spaced musical note frequencies from 65.4 to 1975.5Hz (C2-B6). Stimulus durations were 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, and 1000ms. Six absolute-pitch musicians identified the pitch of pure tones without feedback, reference sounds, or practice trials. Results showed… CONTINUE READING
