Well, the info you give me isn't really clear to me, so I'll just assume you mean a bar with 36 32nd notes at 87 BPM.

This is pretty simple... 16th notes are 4 notes per beat, so 32nd notes are 8 notes per beat. Assuming you're in 4/4, a bar=4 beats, now, there's no problem if you had 32 notes, as that'd just be 8 per beat... But you've got 4 more to get in there now.

So what I'd do is take the full bar, so (36*32)/60, and divide that by 4, as there are 4 bars, to get the right result, if you get what I mean.

I'm not really good at explaining stuff like this I hope you get it, if not, I'll try and explain more clearly.

(Btw: the result would be 4,8 nps)


Edit: And I sure do hope I got this **** right... Looks okay though.

160 * 8 / 60?

No, because 16th notes are 16 in a bar, a bar is (in 4/4) 4 beats, so 16/4 = 4 notes per beat for 16th notes. This is the number you use.

So it's 160*4/60.

How did you do it? I might've ****ed up, never calculated something like that myself so hey... How'd you do it then?

96BPM

al 32s and basically just cut the last part of and fill the bar of so it's a bit the same speed

96*8/60 = 12,8
this means that it's even a bit slower

Blaagh, I just noticed (I wasn't really paying attention before) you gave me wrong info...

I was too tired to notice just then as I had just come home but you can't have a bar with 36 32nd ones in 4/4 ofcourse... You mean groupings of nine, like triplets, only with 9 notes instead of 3? (I don't know the name for those )

Blaaahblooblieehbluuh.
