I’m working on a Garner interference paradigm design using audio stimuli (spoken sentences). The experiment was developed in Superlab 4.5 on a Mac, and we were hoping to run participants on Superlab 4.5 on a Windows computer (well, dual boot). When we attempted to run the experiment on the Windows computer, the sound files were distorted – every item or two would sound choppy. This has never happened on the Mac used to develop the computer.
The experiment contains 3 main blocks, with 1 event per block, and 1 stimulus list (of 64 audio files) per event. Any ideas about why this might be happening?
