258 - Set Delay or Echo to BPM. Handy for FX units with no sync.

Not all Digital Delay or Echo FX have sync features, especially earlier models. It is possible to exactly set the tempo of delay repeats by using this tip.

All you need is a calculator handy and this simple formula :

(60 / BPM) = sbp (Seconds Per Beat) e.g. (60 / 60) = 1 spb (60 / 120) = 0.5 spb (60 / 136) = 0.4411 spb

You can also half the answer for 1/8 notes. This will give 2 equal repeats per beat e.g. (60 / 60) / 2 = 0.5 spb (60 / 120) / 2 = 0.25 spb (60 / 136) / 2 = 0.2205 spb

You can also half the answer again for 1/16 notes. This will give 4 equal repeats per beat e.g. (60 / 60) / 2 / 2 = 0.25 spb (60 / 120) / 4 = 0.125 spb (60 / 136) / 4 = 0.1103 spb

It works backwards (slower repeats) using multiplication as well. e.g. (60 / 60) * 2 = 2 spb (60 / 120) * 2 = 1 spb (60 / 136) * 2 = 0.8823 spb

Simply set the Delay or Echo time parameters to the calculated answer. Works every time!

Using loads of feedback has interesting results. Enhance drum rhythms with a subtle approach.

Hope this has been useful to someone.
