Questions about developing my experiments on Android
I’m currently trying to build a temporal perception experiment, which will be conducted through a smartphone (Android device). So, I have two main questions about developing my experiments on Android.
- The temporal task that I’m building, demands fine tuning in timing differences, or else, being capable of discriminating the duration between very short tones. The range of the durations that I will use varies from 30ms to 250ms. So my first question is, if the running on the droid version is accurate as far as concerns such small temporal intervals (e.g., comparing 30ms trials vs. 70ms. trials). Will the stimuli be presented at such small durations, or I’ll have problems? Can I trust droid in terms of timing properties?
- I have read that a limitation of developing experiments for Android, is that the sampler item ignores panning and pitching. Thus, am I able of presenting auditory stimuli only in the left or the right earphone (by using the pan values left or right)?
