    1st get a calculator

    1- look at your tempo
    2-then divide 60,000/tempo ..........................Example....60,000/90bpm
    3-this number will give you the quarter note..which will be 666.6 at 901bpm
    4-now if you want to double it..divide that number by 2 for eight notes..
    I know fruity loops has a delay that does it for you..
    but if your using another program to record and mix your vocals..this is how you do it...
    now you won't have to keep playing with it to get it just right...

    or, if you already know the tempo of the beat, you can change the tempo of the session and sync whatever delay you're using.

    exactly@TR.

    let's say you're routing a mixer channel in FL to another channel, and you want a delay on it...u can set the post or pre delay on the mixer channel you're routing it to, to milliseconds. in this case, that would be a great place to use that calculation.

    sometimes you may use another program to record vocals..like pro tools or something..and will need to manually set the delay...

    in protools you can set the session to the same tempo of your song. that way you can sync any delay plugin to that tempo. i'm sure logic does the same. I can't remember if adobe audition/cool edit does it and i haven't used cubase. so possibly, for those 2, this equation would come in handy, but i'm not exactly sure.

    wow..lol..protools does it for you also..
    but at the end of the day...those are still the ingredients to make it happen..knowing the science can be much more rewarding than just knowing where to click..

    i definitely agree with you there. knowing the fundamentals of how to do something can definitely give you an advantage when you want to try something new.
