Here goes upload of short calculator useful in a situation that there is loop of unknown BPM in a sample editor and we want to know it’s BPM.
In such a case you download the tool, install it, then select one beat length in a loop by selection range in sample editor and click on the tempo button in a tool. Tool will automatically convert length of the beat into BPM, respecting main instrument transposition, current sample transposition and finetuning as well as sampling frequency.
For improving precision of conversion you may select range of two, four, eight beats and so on, to get it calculated even better.
At the first drop the tool automatically takes full length of sample as the beat length.
According to ceejay wish, you can now drop the tempo back to Renoise by pressing “Set song BPM” button.
Also x2 and :2 buttons are added for adjusting beat division in case that 178BPM tempo was measured as 89BPM or so.
Another thing is set sample BPM to song, which works similar to Renoise’s Beat-Sync, the number of beats doesn’t have to be known though. It’s enough when we know it’s number per minute.
Cheers and have fun!
