Calculate audio delay for any tempo (BPM)

If you want to set an audio delay (‘echo’) in sync with the tempo (beats-per-minute) of your song, you can calculate it with the new Audio Delay calculator.

First of all, if you don’t know the BPM (beats-per-minute) tempo of a song, you can use the tap-your-tempo tool to just tap along on your spacebar and see the tempo.

Then, you can use this tempo, together with the time signature (for most modern, mainstream music this will be 4/4) and fill this in on the Audio Delay calculator. You can then try different fraction of the beat (1/2 beat, 2/3 beat, 1/8 beat …) and see the corresponding milliseconds value.
