How can images show when sound stimuli ends?

Hi all,

System: Win 10

PsychoPy version: 2020.1.3

What are you trying to achieve?:
I want 6 images show simultaneously when sound stimuli ends, i know how to make it when there is only one sound track. But now, i have 12 sound tracks, and these 12 sound tracks have different length of time. And also they were set in a loop as stimuli (each condition show one of them). So i am confused about this problem.

What is on the screen during the sound? If nothing then you could just have the sound in one routine followed by your images.

Alternatively, have a column for your sound durations in your Excel file.

Hi Wakecarter,

Thanks for the reply, but please forgive i am new to Psychopy, and i’m so sorry that i could not quite understand your suggestion.

Here is the routine in experiment,

  • sound_1: sound track stimuli
  • xxx1image: the 6 options that provided for participants to choose
  • mouse_1: click to record which image/option participants choose

Now, sound stimuli and 6 images show together. According to your suggestion, i should add a column of sound durations in my Excel file of loop. And may i ask how to set the sound and image start time and end time setting?

Do you need anything on the screen while the sound is playing?

Hi Wakecarter,

No, i do not.

In that case delete the sound component from this routine and add it as the only component in a new routine that comes before but still inside the loop. Leave the sound duration blank

P.S. All of your components should have a start of 0 seconds

Hi Wakecarter,

Thanks for your reply! And it’s a great solution i didn’t thought of before.
Thanks again!
