W E I N B E R G E R However, since the first edition of The Psychology of Music was published in 1982, there have been several developments that provide some rationale for this chapter. First, the use of complex stimuli, including those that have direct relevance for music, has increased. This increase seems to be due to the ready availability of laboratory computers, which both permitted the investigation of longstanding issues best addressed with complex stimuli and motivated thinking about how the new technology could be exploited.

The result of one such correlation analysis is shown in Figure 7 for halls with reverberation times less than 2 sec. As is to be expected, reverberation time correlates positively with the consensus preference (x) dimensions and has almost zero correlation with the individual disparity (y) dimension. In other words, for halls with short reverberation times (<2 sec), most listeners prefer longer reverberation times, irrespective of individual musical tastes. By contrast, Figure 7 also shows that most listeners dislike a large interaural coherence, that is, a monophonic effect; they want to be "bathed" in sound fields with small interaural coherence (Ando, 1985).
