[Eeglablist] Muse Monitor to EEGLAB timestamp/sampling rate issue

Hi Patrick,

I have issued version 3 of the Musemonitor import plugin for EEGLAB and it allows to compute or set the sampling rate.
Let me know if it works better for you.

Best wishes,

I understand that the Muse SDK time-stamps based on buffering by the Bluetooth module. However, data collected through Muse Monitor (which should have a 256Hz sampling rate) is automatically sampled and time-stamped at 300Hz in EEGLAB. Resampling to 256Hz in EEGLAB just downsamples the record.

This difference makes it so that records are noticeably shorter after importing into EEGLAB. How does EEGLAB determine the sampling rate when the time-stamps of the imported record is irregular? Is there anyway to specify the sampling rate when importing data?
