    Td = 60E3/BPM
    example: A pop song @ 120BPM
    Td= 60E3/120 = 500 mS = 0.5 S

    Ya can play with regeneration/feedback setting also.

    If ya want deeper/shorter delays, try out some multiples:
    125mS < 250mS < 500mS < 1S
    Hope it helped ya!

    Thanks so much for taking the trouble to answer the question. Could you please write it in normal English(sorry never went to Princeton)? I am abit confused.

    What is TD? Is it Delay Time? Also what is 60E3 and how do you get 500 milliseconds by dividing it by 120 beat per minute?

    Also the bit about shorter delays is a bit over my head. More detailed help will be appreciated.

    Thanks :roll:

    If you don't like mathematics:

    Time ten bars with a stopwatch, then divide that reading by 40. You'll get quarter note delay.

    :) Buz, If you want to PM me your e-mail, I will send you a tempo to delay time conversion table.

    Thanks Rick,

    I actually followed the link given above and read something about the free Delay Calculator which I have downloaded. So, I am aright now. When I was at School my Math teacher thought I was the dumbest thing he had ever see, while every other teacher thought I was a genius.

    :) Hey, we are ALL genius, eh? Funny thing about processor makers. They say that you can tear up your conversion charts, for the box will do it for you...well maybe on a few things, but not all, LOL! :D

    normal english?lol
    lots of efx boxes already calculate that once you type the song BPM and you efine the sound figure.
    No need for looking at tables and so.
    td = delay time

    Have you tried midi clock? I use it a lot when I setup a timed delay for certain material.

    I have a delay calculator, software prog that is easy to use, makes life simple. If you are on mac email me and i will send it to you. I am sure there is a windows one as well, do a search and you will find one.

    Thanks Mate,

    I have already downloaded a PC version.


    easiest way to do it is 60,000/tempo

    ie. 60000/120= 500.00 ms

    hey shine, look above
    I had just written that brother

    Buzain, 60E3 means 60 x 10,000 = 60,000 or 60e3.
    E=exponencial from math ok?

    so 60,000/120 = 500ms = 0.5 seconds = 500E-3=1/2 second

    Hope it helped ya brother

    Alecio, I may be wrong but I always thought E=mc(2)???? :D :D :s:

    VL = L. di/dt
    IL = 1/L Integer VL.dt
    Ic = C. dq/dt
    Z = R +-jx
    x = Xl=-Xc
    H(s) = 1/ 1+sRC

    wow, lots of math msturbation



    I saw your post, just wanted to simplify it. It sounded like some people didn't realize what the E3 thing meant.

    Yeah, I never heard of E3. Is that an engineer thing or a Brazilian thing? Unfortunately, I'm neither!

    I've heard of 60,000 though!

    Thanks for translating! :h:
