After studying the live stream “How To Build A Killer DJ Intro” on Monday 26th Sept 2017, I think I might have worked out what was bewildering Mike, and myself with the ms vs beats conversion.
At 35:50 is when he started his ‘new discovery’.
Please Note: All of what I typed below was making sense of course, but upon watching the stream at that point a few times, Mike did point out the timings were for 120 bpm and not 128 bpm which IS what he set in the preferences. So I’m at a loss as to why it’s doing it. We’ll just stick to that calculator website for now.
Anyway, here’s my study chatter:
The time was calculated as 469 ms on that web page.
So of course you enter that in the ‘ms’ value.
When Mike changed the delay time units to ‘beats’, it changed the beat to 0.94, which I think could be possibly a more precise value.
But then when Mike changed to beats, and set it to 1, then changed the time units to ‘ms’, it changed the ‘ms’ to 500.
So, 469 ms is possibly a true precise value of 0.94 bpm, but it doesn’t explain why swapping it around would give 500 ms for 128…
And that’s when I realised what Mike had said which was it is giving settings for 120 bpm and not 128 bpm.
So it’s got me stumped for now. Maybe my chatter can trigger someone’s thoughts. It’s something I’ve never used before. I’ll do some further digging when I am not falling asleep.
Thanks for reading. Good luck!
