I've put together a sheet that lets you pick a speed and will tell you where to place notes, and with what Gxx delay for perfect triplets.
There's also a visual guide for "standard" triplet speeds 3, 6, and 9
It's attached. Hope it helps!

Re: Triplet Calculator
imo shortcuts like these can make a user dependent on them and weaken their understanding of how the tracker actually works.

Re: Triplet Calculator
I can't open it because it says it is corrupt. Is it possible to fix this?
wow this is total BS

Re: Triplet Calculator
Thanks but no thanks, I can do math in my head whenever I'd need it. I even have an A in math... So yah.
Hi! I'm not really active here anymore but I still make music. Nowadays I mostly make dubstep with emphasis on good melodies and chord progressions.

Re: Triplet Calculator
These are the contents of the entire spreadsheet that change with the single speed variable:
There is no calculation involved in displaying these Gxx strings. A spreadsheet consisting only of switch statements on the single variable is called a lookup table. This is not a calculator.
Code: Select all
B3 = 3 (Speed)
B4 = B3
B5 = B4 * 4
B6 = B5 * 4
B10 = B5 / 3
B11 = B10 * 2
B12 = B11 * 2
D3 = IF(OR(B3=3,B3=6,B3=9),"Even triplets OK!",IF(OR(B3=1,B3=2,B3=4,B3=5,B3=7,B3=8),"WARNING! Speed not evenly divisible by 3!","WARNING! Not a valid Famitracker Speed!"))
D4 = IF(OR(B3=3,B3=6,B3=9),"Use the table below to determine the note placement and Gxx delay setting to use for even triplets.",IF(OR(B3<1,B3>9),"Please choose a whole number speed between 1 and 9.","Even triplets not possible using four (4) rows per beat."))
G10 = IF(B3=3,"G01",IF(B3=6,"G02",IF(B3=9,"G03","Irregular")))
G11 = IF(B3=3,"G02",IF(B3=6,"G04",IF(B3=9,"G06","Irregular")))
G12 = IF(B3=3,"G01",IF(B3=6,"G02",IF(B3=9,"G03","Irregular")))
I10 = IF(B3=3,"G02",IF(B3=6,"G04",IF(B3=9,"G06","Irregular")))
I11 = IF(B3=3,"G01",IF(B3=6,"G02",IF(B3=9,"G03","Irregular")))
I12 = IF(B3=3,"G02",IF(B3=6,"G04",IF(B3=9,"G06","Irregular")))

Re: Triplet Calculator
The speed value represents the number of frames within a row. Depending on the spacing of the triplet in your project, all you have to do is divide the total number of frames to be taken up by the triplet by 3 and place your notes accordingly. This last part is where the Gxx command comes into play.
In the event the speed value is not divisible by 3 it is possible to round the note position to the nearest integer.
tl,dr basic math skill is all it takes to successfully translate tuplets into tracker values.
It's possible I haven't worded my post adequately so let me know if I did

In my opinion, shortcuts like "imo" make a person dependent on them and weaken their understanding of how the English language actually works.

And I have a doubleMasters in Applied Mathematics and Statistics from UC Berkeley but if you decide put a tool up that isn't helpful to ME I'll just keep my mouth shut.

Feel better now that you got that out of your system?
