    Say a song is 86 BPM. I'd like to get that, I think, "triplet" sound using my Nova Delay. I can get the type of delayed sound by multiplying the 86 BPM by 4 (86 X 4 = 344 BPM), setting the BPM to 344 and using the quarter note subdivision. Is there a simpler way to dial in the same delay (344 BPM) using the Eighth Note Triplet subdivision + tap tempo?

    I guess what I'm asking is how the Eighth Note Triplet equates to Quarter note BPM multiplied by 4.

    no. you'll never get this using the "Eighth Note Triplet subdivision" because triplets are multiples of three....

    what pedal are you using?

    to the OP.....if you can set in ms,
    86 bpm = 232ms in 1/8 triplet

    Good Luck,
