Is there such a thing as "standard" delay timings that were used on insturments? and what are they in beats, not milliseconds.

peace

There're nuff lists around on the net with BPM to Delaytime tabels as well as delaytime calculators.
Check MD's http://www.dubroom.org he's got some links up on that issue

Hi Looter

As you are asking for timings in beats not
milliseconds:

Most used are:
- 1 beat per echo (Best dressed chicken, Doctor Alimantado)
- 0.66 beats per echo = 3 echoes per 2 beats (Jah Glory - Messian Dread)
- 1.5 beats per echo
- 0.5 beat per echo

(I am counting Reggae with the rhythm guitar on the second
and fourth beat of each bar - typically 120 .. 170 beats
per minute)

If you need the timings in milliseconds:
You could use the popular freeware BPM calculator
"Freequency" from http://www.bassline.com
(Unfortunately the site was shutdown. So if
anybody knows a working alternative link,
let us know..)

To calculate by hand use this formula:

delaytime in milliseconds = 60000 : BPM x N

BPM = Beats per minute count of your song
N = number of beats from one echo to the next
(see examples above N = 1 , 1.5 , 0.5)

If you use a stereo delay you can set N=1 for
the left and N=1.5 for the right channel. Then
enable crossing of the feedback lines. This way
you will have rhythmical delays jumping left and
right in the stereo field.
