# Calculate bpm with length and time provided

I don't know if it is possible to calculate BPM with timing and length only? For example, I have the timing of each note, that is the first note starts with 0s, second note starts with 2.1, the third note starts with 3.... Then, can I calculate BPM without measures and time signatures? Thanks.

• BPM is directly related to timing - and vice versa, but the question needs more clarity, please.

• ... but as you don't have measures or time signatures, are "beats" the moments that you would tap your foot. Commented Aug 30, 2022 at 8:31
• The real question seems to be "what constitutes a musical beat in my data". And then you would have to explain what your data is. If you want to calculate Things Per Minute, you will have to know what a Thing is, and what a Minute is. I guess you know what minute means, so that leaves finding out what a beat is.
