Alright I know almost nothing about music theory. However, I am working on music production with 2 programs (REASON 3.0 and RECYCLE)...For Recycle, in order to find out the Original Tempo or BPM of the sample I use, I need to know the "sign" or time signauter, and how many bars it is, but I have almost no idea how to do this. I would really appreciate any help anyone has to offer. Thanks in advance

You should prob google time signatures. It's something you really gotta listen for and understand the concepts. I believe there are several websites that let you listen to what different time signatures sound like. This is how I became familiar with em.

I digested time signatures through realising it's just a bit of simple arithmetic and some fractions.

I created a simple "demo" in guitar pro awhile back here is the link to the disscussion here about it.

Its more about complex time, but it displays regular vs. complex time.

Should definitely look at wiki/google for info on these matters, I find it hard to believe your using these programs to make music (I'm guessing) and didn't know this stuff.
