I know y time sig and stuff its just that I cannot see how you would
attain even with the extended values you described a delay time that is
something like 3 quarter notes + a dotted 8th 
wich could _also_ be described in a DDelay soft as 51 x 1/16 the exact
delay time (in msecs) being calculated from the DDelay tempo (midi clock
or as a preset tempo)
I like the strange "Canons" that can occur sometimes when you do setups
like that and play to a 4/4 drum pattern that synces the delay time

I think this would be a much more instinctive way to enter delay times
by choosing the ref value (1/8 ,1/4, trip etc  _and_ how many I want of
them as my delay time; also, when you search for the right delay time by
ear it would be more musical to scroll the delay times by increasing the
nb of eight you want than go thru all the intermediate values you dont
want to hear (on stage)
