Extended calculations

BEATS

These are the lengths of multiple beats (handy for calculating loop lengths)

1 beat
500 ms
2 Hz / 2 beats
1000 ms
1 Hz / 3 beats
1.5 sec
0.667 Hz / 4 beats
2 sec
0.5 Hz / 6 beats
3 sec
0.333 Hz / 8 beats
4 sec
0.25 Hz / 12 beats
6 sec
0.167 Hz / 16 beats
8 sec
0.125 Hz / 24 beats
12 sec
0.083 Hz / 32 beats
16 sec
0.063 Hz

BARS

These are the lengths of multiple bars/measures (handy for estimating the length of a song).

1 bar
2 sec / 2 bars
4 sec / 3 bars
6 sec / 4 bars
8 sec / 6 bars
12 sec / 8 bars
16 sec / 12 bars
24 sec / 16 bars
32 sec / 24 bars
48 sec / 32 bars
64 sec

 If you have a 135 BPM song and you want a phase modulation of 4 beats: that is 1.78 sec (BEATS)

 If you have a 98 BPM song in a measure of 3/4, and you want to know how long 32 bars is: 58.78 sec(BARS)

 If you have a 128 BPM song and you want an audio delay of 2/3 of a beat: this is 313 ms (FRACTIONS)
