Abstract The effect of deviations from temporal expectations on tempo discrimination was studied in 3 experiments using isochronous auditory sequences. Temporal deviations consisted of advancing or delaying the onset of a comparison pattern relative to an "expected" onset, defined by an extension of the periodicity of a preceding standard pattern. An effect of onset condition was most apparent when responses to faster and slower comparison patterns were analyzed separately and onset conditions were mixed. Under these conditions, early onsets produced more "faster" judgments and lower thresholds for tempo increases, and late onsets produced more "slower" judgments and lower thresholds for tempo decreases. In another experiment, pattern tempo had a similar effect: Fast tempos led to lower thresholds for tempo increases and slow tempos led to lower thresholds for tempo decreases. Findings support oscillator-based approaches to time discrimination.
