What weird timing. I just pulled that tip for Cakewalk's next newsletter. We took it from a book called Cakewalk Power! Many professional musicians use delay to synchronize echoes with their music. For instance, you can have the echoes play in time with each quarter note, eighth note, sixteenth note, and so on. All that's required for this cool trick is a little simple math. Begin by figuring the Delay Time needed to synchronize the echoes to each quarter note. To do so, just divide 60,000 (the number of milliseconds in one minute) by the current Tempo (measured in beats per minute) of your project. So for a Tempo of 120 bpm, you get 500 milliseconds. If you set the delay time to 500, the resulting echoes will sound with a quarter note pulse. To figure out the Delay Time for other note values, you just need to divide or multiply. Because an eighth note is half the value of a quarter note, you simply divide 500 by two to get 250 milliseconds. A sixteenth note is half the value of an eighth note, so 250 divided by 2 is 125. See how that works? If you want to find out larger note values, just multiply by two. Because a half note is twice as long as a quarter note, you multiply 500 by 2 to get 1000 milliseconds, and so on. <http://www.cakewalk.com/Tips/TechTipArchive.html> Go back to the Tech Tip archive. -----Original Message----- From: Daniel [mailto:daniel_c@vtr.net] Sent: Saturday, October 27, 2001 11:44 AM To: loopers-delight@loopers-delight.com Subject: math children what's the equation you need to do to calculate delay time? much obliged
