BPM to ms Converter/Calculator
A super simple tool to convert a beats per minute value (BPM) into milliseconds (ms) to get how many ms it breaks into for the different timing divisions of a measure. Useful when you're using a piece of gear/tool/plugin that expects a value in ms for effects and things like that.
the math behind it
If you're interesting in knowing the math behind it, it's actually pretty straightforward:
Just take 60,000 (the amount of milliseconds in a minute) and divide it by the BPM value to get the value in ms for 1/4 note (1 beat).
So for example, given a BPM of 111:
60,000 / 111 gives us 541ms for 1 beat (1/4 note). So from there we can deduct the rest of the time divisions by multiplying or dividing further from the 1/4 note value. From 1/4 to 1/16 we would divide by 4, for example.
Hey 👋, I'm Seb and I'm creating muted.io
I need your help! If you have a few dollars to spare, I would be incredibly grateful if you could donate to support the development of muted.io. 🙏
I estimate that I would be able to fully support myself if only about 3% of the site's visitors made a one time $4 donation.
My ultimate goal is to be able to focus my time on creating more free musical tools, and your donation will go directly towards making that goal a reality. 🙌
