Enter the total beats per minute and select a tempo into the calculator to determine the total milliseconds (ms). This calculator can also determine the bpm if given the ms and tempo.

## BPM to MS Formula

The following formula is used to convert beats per minute to milliseconds.

ms = 60,000 / BPM * T

- Where ms is milliseconds
- BPM is beats per minute
- T is the tempo (i.e. 1/4 note, 1/8 note, etc.)

To calculate ms from bpm, divide 60,000 by the bpm, then multiply the result by the temp.

## BPM to MS Definition
