A group of 8 students engaged in a Tonmeister training program were presented with multichannel loudspeaker reproductions of a set of solo piano performances, and were asked to complete two attribute rating sessions that were well separated in time. Five of the 8 listeners produced highly consistent ratings after a 6 month period during which they received further Tonmeister training. Physical predictors for the obtained attribute ratings were developed from the analysis of binaural recordings of the piano reproductions in order to support comparison between these stimuli and other stimuli, and thereby to establish a basis for independent variation in the attributes to serve both creative artistic goals and further scientific exploration of such multichannel music reproductions.
