# Middle position between two delayed notes

How does one find out the middle value between two delayed notes? Is there any tool for this?

Should be able to Alt-DownArrow with the cursor in the delay column,
highlighting from 88 to C4, then press Ctrl-I which will âfillâ the values,
making it easier to find the âmiddleâ.

Also in hex it goes from 1-9 then A-F, so 9, A, and B is between those values,
making Ax roughly the âmiddleâ.

That doesnât quite work here (if there is an even number of lines inbetween).

I should update the âplace selected notes evenlyâ tool to handle this.

I was actually going to ask for this.

Oh I see what you are asking for now, not whatâs between 88 and C4,
but rather how to place a note ~between line 15.55 and 20.75.

Just curiousâŚ

Other than a tool; would a repeat effect, using volume slide, and a more precise tpl value help here?
Or would: [ (20.75 - 15.55) / 2 = 2.6 lines ] indicate that the middle note is around: Line 17 with delay of A0?

Replying to my post above, yes this is how you do it; although the numbers were estimated.
The procedure or psuedocode below seems to do the trick.

Here are the steps:

1. figure out the starting line: 15 + (136 / 256) = 15.31
2. figure out the ending line: 20 + (196 / 256) = 20.77
3. figure out the distance between start and ending lines: 20.77 - 15.31 = 5.67
4. find the middle position between two delayed notes: 15 + (5.67 / 2) = 17.84
5. determine the delay value to use: .84 * 256 = 215 (which is D7 in Hex)

Answer: Line 17 with a delay value of D7
