How to Match Delay Time to Tempo

Here is a formula of how to figure out the correct delay setting,so it will be matched with the tempo of the song....
... When adding an echo effect to audio or MIDI data, there may be times when you want the echo to be synchronized with the tempo of your song. This tip explains how to accomplish this with some simple math.

To figure out the delay time value that you need to use for the current tempo of your song, simply divide 60,000 (the number of milliseconds in one minute) by the current tempo (measured in beats per minute) of your song. This will give you the correct delay time value to use with your echo effect so that the echoes will be synchronized to the quarter notes in your song. For example, with a tempo of 110, you would use a delay time value of 545 milliseconds for quarter note echoes.
Thanks to the web site a great site for Cakewalk Sonar info

Of course there is a PDF file you can download that will have it already calculated!
