Question Does discrete test tones exist?

I searched the internet, but i propably do not use the proper words (english is a secondary language).
In this age of digital, are there any discrete test tones that would represent the dynamic nature of music, and could be processed to give meanigful data as to why some component sound terrible while having otherwise decent measurements.
current measurement are rather static, single tone, or tone sweep, when multitone, they are rather not musical and unpleasant to listen to.
What about short burst of tone single or chord like multitone, but with an envelope such as attack, decay, sutain,release. These would be disrete(having a clear beginning and clear end) and could be generated/captured with a sound card and processed by the computer to provide different measurements, and possibly meaningful measurement.

Does something like that already exist?
where there any effort in the past by the DIY community in this field?
Thank you all in advance for your insightful comments!
