In this chapter, a brief review of related literatures in the general field of response measurement is presented. Following the short rehearsal of the evidence base is an introduction of the history of the development of the Continuous Response Measurement Apparatus (CReMA) by Himonides (2011), a creative integration of traditional analog synthesiser technology with a biomedical data acquisition system that was originally developed as part of a doctoral research investigation that was centred on the understanding and/or construction of beauty in a vocal performance (Himonides, 2009; Himonides and Welch, 2005). The main focus is then placed on the development of a novel software tool, inspired by the CReMA, that has been designed upon request by members of the research community who had expressed an interest in identifying a simple way to capture, process and analyse affective response data. This new software tool, CReMA MIDI, enables any researcher that has access to any MIDI information generator (i.e. a controller and/or instrument) and any MIDI stream-capturing software (i.e. any modern digital audio workstation (DAW) or MIDI-enabled mobile device) to process automatically captured MIDI files and extract information components automatically for further analyses using any preferred statistical analysis package.
