Delay time calculator To create an audible rhythm with the delay effect, you should synchronise the delay time to the rhythm of the music.

Below the fold: a Delay Time Generator and Delay and Frequencies Calculator.

Delay Time Formula

Here's an example done manually - we'll assume you want to synchronise to the 1/16th (sixteenth) note:

  • Time the length of 4 bars
  • Divide the time of those 4 bars by 64

Don't worry about the theory though, just use the delay time calculator below!

Delay Time Generator

To use:
  • Insert the BPM of your song
  • Select the note division to convert
BPM notes = ms

Delay and Frequencies Calculator

Enter the bpm of the song you're working on and this calculator will give you the length in milliseconds for several note values.

Main use: to set your delays, pre-delays and reverbs etc. It also calculates the Hertz modulation for each note length too!

Great for setting modulation effects like Tremolo, Vibrato and... that's right: LFOs!
