The many times I've had to set a delay time the most convenient
unit could have been samples, millisecs or meters (at the speed
of sound), depending on the context. I've never had the need to
set it in beats. Which are not even a fixed unit but require the
delay processor to know the current bpm value. Could be done in
an app or plugin that mainly deals with beats, not in a general-
purpose plugin. 



A world of exhaustive, reliable metadata would be an utopia.
It's also a pipe-dream, founded on self-delusion, nerd hubris
and hysterically inflated market opportunities. (Cory Doctorow)
