Enter the number of audio samples and the sample rate into the calculator to determine the duration in milliseconds. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Samples To Ms Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the conversion of samples to milliseconds.

MS = (S / SR) * 1000


  • MS is the duration in milliseconds (ms)
  • S is the number of audio samples
  • SR is the sample rate (kHz)

To calculate the duration in milliseconds, divide the number of audio samples by the sample rate. Then, multiply the result by 1000 to convert the duration from seconds to milliseconds. This is because 1 second is equivalent to 1000 milliseconds.

What is a Samples To Ms?

Samples To Ms (Milliseconds) is a conversion metric used in digital audio processing. It refers to the conversion of the number of audio samples to the equivalent duration in milliseconds. This is important in audio editing and production as it helps in precise timing and synchronization of audio elements. The conversion rate depends on the sample rate of the audio file, which is typically 44.1 kHz or 48 kHz in professional audio production.
