Summary/Abstract: Interdisciplinary scientific research leads to the necessity of developing both new instruments for empirical assessment as well as flexible data processing methods. Music cognition is an interdisciplinary research field that studies the cognitive foundations of the musical phenomenon and its consequences. Research in music cognition requires both the creative use of already existing research tools and methodologies as well as the creation of new research tools corresponding to a specifically interdisciplinary approach. Both Max and the open-source counterpart Pure Data offer the potential of developing a flexible platform for the creation of IT tools specific to the musical cognition research. This paper proposes a range of solutions for creating new instruments for research in music cognition using Max or Pure Data as a development environment.
