I have a song that is 96bpm but it says "Moderately slow, in 2" at the top. Does this mean the song is actually 192bpm and that the person who wrote the notation decided to write it as 96bpm? Could someone explain what this is and why it is used?
It is different because this piece is in 4/4 and also, I was more interested to know why the sheet music is written this way. if "in 2" @ 96bpm is the same as 192bpm why not just write the sheet music in 192bpm?
