A systematic quantitative listening test was conducted in order to investigate the influence of western musical instruments on the ability to cope with latency. A questionnaire and different control mechanisms, including a predefined score and three different metronomes (aural, visual, and aural-visual), enabled the gathering of data under equal conditions for all participants while performing with self-delay. The influence of the musical instrument was demonstrated with the experimental data. Furthermore, the measurement of the latency tolerance range (LTR) enabled the comparison of different instrument groups and demonstrated the relationship between musical tempo and latency.
