Tango tempo toolThis tool allows you to measure the dance speed of a piece of tango music. The speed is expressed in steps per minute (SPM).
How to operate?1. turn on a piece of tango music which you want to examine
2. listen to the beat and count along in your mind
3. start tapping along on the 1st count in the grey area below
4. after 10 taps the SPM figure should be stable and reliable
5. stop tapping at any time, the result remains visible
A few seconds after your last tap, this tool will reset itself by tapping once more.
milonga: tap on the first count (1-2, 1-2, ...)
tango: tap on the first and third count (1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4, ...)
vals (3/4 beat): tap on the first count (1-2-3, 1-2-3, ...)
neo-tango: the same as tango (or vals in case of 3/4 beat)
