Lets say I can play 8th note triplets at 230 bpm. How would I figure out the nps?
~Long live the 6-string~
I do # of notes per beat, times beats per minute, divided by 60. So, in your case, it's 3 notes per beat, times 230 bpm, divided by 60, which equals 11.5 nps.

I find it funny how people keep asking it. If you look at the definitions it's already in there.
BPM=beats per minute
NPS=notes per second
the only thing you need to know is something like note per beat which is given.

NPB*BPM=NPM

NPS=NPM/60

or NPS=BPM/(60/NPB)
60/NPB=15 for 16th's, 10 for sextuplets, 20 for triplets, 12 for quintuplets etc.

230/20=11.5

I typed this out to show it's already in the terms itself and after you know the numbers for the note divisions you don't have to calculate them again everytime.

These questions wouldn't be so annoying if people like you or the threadstarter asked them in the Random Shred Chat thread.

There's no need to start a thread like this. It just annoys people.
