This is probably the wrong place for this and i used the search bar and didn't find anything. But how do you find your nps?
...and wtf is a NPS?
Quote by MightyAl

Count how many notes you play in a second?
errmmm

take the number of notes played and divide by the number of seconds it took to play.....

no i heard of a different way to find it by using your Bpm and what kind of notes played at that speed but i dont remember how you do it.
with 60bpm, each tick is a second.
So good to see you once again.
I thought that you were hiding.
And you thought that I had run away.

I'm not really sure to be honest...
120 bpm. on the beat thats a note every half a second. so if you fit 4 notes between ticks thats a note every 8th of a second thus 8 notes per second.
two years ago i could play 28 nps, its probably similar now

I call bull**** on that

if their was sarcasm I missed it
Well, for example, playing 4ths on 60bpm is 1nps (One 4th = One beat, and at 60 beats per minute, one beat = one minute). So if you play 16ths at 60bpm it's 4nps. 16ths at 240bpm is 16nps. You see how it goes.
Look!

It's an ego booster for people who shred, they compare their nps-penis to other shredders' to see who has it larger.

EDIT: Damn, beaten.

There were threads about this with speedy Guitarists in another forum. I believe the way they did it was someone took the "fastest" part of a song, and cut the fastest second out of it. Then, you slow that second down (with something like Audacity or ACID), and count the notes. As long as you're not playing slop, and you take exactly one second, it works.

On a side note, this is your fastest NPS speed, as long as you are playing your fastest, and you take the quickest second of your playing.

EDIT: Side note #2, and this NPS counting is only important if you can actually use it in a song and make it sound good. If you're just showing off, then it's a waste.

Either you do it by slowing it down and figuring out how many times in a second (or fraction of a second) or do it this way-

(notes per beat x beats per minute) divided by 60.

notes per beat- 4 for 16th, 8 for 32nd, 6 for sextuplets, etc.

Exactly how does NPS counting contribute to music composition...?
