I think you just take your milliseconds and divide it from 60,000 for a quarter note, and then just divide it in 1/8ths, 1/16ths, etc. as needed. For example:

500 ms

60,000/500 ms= 120 bpm's

If your milliseconds are doing an 1/8th notes delay, then they'd probably be 250 ms if we're talking about the same song:

60,000/(250 ms x 2)= 120 bpm's

I haven't done math in years though so I could be wrong. I hope that helps although I'm sure someone else could explain it better.

that about sums it up... just thought i'd add that 60,000 is the number of milliseconds in a minute... just so there is no confusion.

To convert BPM into ms -> divide 60 with BPM and multiply with hundred.

Thank you, and trust me, with my serious lack of ability to explain things sometimes, there was probably confusion But I do my best.

widget

if you're a mac user (and you should be...) there is a widget that will convert both ways for you.

go to: http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/
and search "bpm" there is a great one... and there's a sweet tap tempo widget, too.

cheers!

I was trying to find the BigBlueLounge Widget 1.0, but the links are dead (even in apple)

Anyone could help? or say another widget for this calculations?
