I usually make House at 129.23 (For some reason i like the way it goes with the kicks)

Trance is fun at 144 -146ish, and anything above that is that harder styles, IMO.

Drum and bass i like 170, 174, 175, 180, and 200.

Dubstep the slowest ive every had it was 60bpm.

stick to 128 for uplifting house and such. :P

One of my theories is that 128 is just about the slowest bpm where a kick alone (4 on the floor beat ofcourse) is still really entertaining. Anything slower sounds rather bad without hats in between.

haha,

you know i was thinking about it and i believe for most conventional dj's the seating of this bpm has alot to do with the way it is put to work.

on older mixers you could only pitch shift and speed up or slow down a track so much before it began to sound grainy or obnoxious, so i think it is meant for mixing purposes to be sped up a minimum of 7 up or seven down so that it could be mixed in with ease.

just what i think

In the tempo of 125-128 BPM of hip-hop, pop or house, also dance tempo of also 128-140 BPM and trance tempo of 130-160 BPM.

That's for a long time tempo of music programs.

How incredibly closed minded to limit yourself to any window of BPM... I'm not understanding how this is an argument. BPM usage is incredibly relative to the piece you are working on. It should never define your song. Tempo that is similar to walking speeds and dancing, of course are going to fit well into music that you dance or groove to. But to say that any one BPM or a window of BPM is what you should use for any one genre of music... is utter insanity.

I just did the math guys, and even the biochemical regraph tests. This IS the BEST BPM on the planet, even changing the value by 0.0001 can result in a flux gravitational shift in the inner vortesimal core of the soundwaves, reducing danceable neutron particle clouds by 23.47% at MINIMUM.

I think NG should for 34.0247 BPM for all new submitted tracks, and I'll get started on cleaning up/deleting all the existing music.

I can vouch for this, I just worked it out and it is technically the best sounding BPM. And I am yet to test this, but synthpop at 34.0247 should produce similar effects to viagra.

Well after running it through my turboencabulator I think you guys are probably right. It couldn't find any better BPMs either. I guess we'll just need really big time signatures to fit all those beats in there.

If you're so picky that anything within 2 bpm of your desired tempo doesn't sound good, then I think you need to force yourself not to use it. There is no arguing about it, you're going to have to force yourself out of this rut that your in. Or alternatively, try a different genre if you can't bear to have a House track that doesn't stray from 128 bpm.
I'll use any tempo that sounds good with whatever I'm making, I think the range of my current list of tracks is 100-160bpm.

I've learned from Nobue Uematsu (Final Fantasy Series) Music that in classical there's a small trick which consists in change a littlebit with timeramps the tempo of the song during ALL the song.

I just wonder how DJs would take this if there was house music processed this way. LOL

I'm usually kind of all over the place when it comes to setting the BPM.
How it usually ends up is me getting the main melodies down, THEN changing the tempo until I like the speed, or lack of speed.

But I agree with OP, 128bpm is god tier, can get some really slow, punchy drums with that, yummy.

Have you ever been in the middle of making something, and then you drastically change the BPM when you're like 80% done? I can't be the only person who has ever done this.
