Interonset interval

In music the interonset interval or IOI is the time between the beginnings or attack-points of successive events or notes, the interval between onsets, not including the duration of the events.[1] For example, two sixteenth notes separated by dotted eighth rest would have the same interonset interval as between a quarter note and a sixteenth note. The concept is often useful for considering rhythms and meters.[1]
