Yes. Select the delay FX on the signal view page. Press the Enter button twice to bring up the FX Edit page. Choose the delay time parameter and rotate knob#4 to select a specific millisecond (ms) value rather than a note-based value. SAVE the preset.

Hello. I am using my PODHD500 for worship music, and it would be nice to be able to put in a specific number for delay tempo, as opposed to using tap tempo or by setting tempo in HD Edit. Is there a way do do this, or am I being way too picky?

 

I checked out other threads but all I saw was talk about ms delays and about using tap tempo with a clicktrack to set tempo. Yes, a clicktrack is helpful and all for preparing patches for a set, but an alternative would be nice. Anybody?

 

Thanks!

 

James

I think you are asking the same thing I asked about the other day. I'm guessing you want to use something like a 1/4 or dotted 1/8 note and set the BPM value for the song?
While editing the delay effect, change it to the note value you want instead of ms and then press and hold the View button. Use the down arrow on the navigator pad to get to screen 6/10 for MIDI/Tempo. Use dial 3 to set it to "preset" and then dial 4 to set the BPM value. It will save that value with the preset.
For other presets you just press the View button again and change the BPM for that preset.

Yep, you're correct. ;)

Just know that you can't set/save the tempo (BPM) to the unit via HD500-Edit. :o

Thanks! I have some patches with ms delays, but never explored them. Now it looks like I have some experimenting to do.

BPM to MS calculator: http://www.thewhippi...-calculator.htm

You could also make a little excel spreadsheet for your smartphone to punch in the math and keep it with you.
