I remember reading a mathematical formula for digital delay timing on one of the group lessons. I looked for it but couldn't remember what lesson it was from. Can anyone repost the formula here?

Hi Craven,

I think Lyle and Michael have both given demonstrations for digital delay timing, but I'm not sure exactly where either.

If you go to our lesson archives link, or the catalog link, you can search the archives for words in the archives. To search for the exact phrase "digital delay", use quote marks in the search box like so:
"digital delay"

One of the guys in Guitar Technique magazine (Stuart Bull?) described a formula. You could look at back copies or email them. It seems a bit excessive setting your delay for each song's bpm rate though - although no doubt very musical sounding. I've heard of several top rock players that just choose a setting and leave it there (e.g. 320ms).

Maybe they use something like this:
wavelength = 1/frequency

e.g. if the beat of song a is 120 beats per minute, convert that to beats per second (x60) = 2 beats per sec

Then, presumably, using the formula above, set the delay to 1/2 bps seconds = 500ms ... seems a bit long to me for a fairly fast bear.

i.e. delay = 1/(beats per minute x 60)

(I think the GT magazine's formula was not as simple as this though).

i.e. delay (ms) = 60,000/(beats per minute)

HOWEVER, check out this link for the reason not to use the above formula (clashing notes): http://www.artemismusic.com

You might also find this interesting: http://www.harmony-central.com/articles/tips/ddl_cascade/

Both articles suggest: the above delay x 3/4
i.e.:
delay (msec) = 45,000/bpm
