 On this page you'll find the tempo for U2 songs. That can be a great help for finding the delay times. I've used the free software called MixMeister BPM Analyzer, but I can't say that all are absolutely correct. But from what I've heard the results are usually on the money. There is no point in super accurate numbers like 88.78, so I've chosen the closest.

  I've also included the delay times which are corresponding to the tempos. These are just taken straight from Stilwel's DelayTimeCalculator, and are only there for easy reference. Sometimes it's also great to have the tunings available, so I've included them. Remember that I've used the tracks that are on the mentioned albums/DVDs, and songs can have different tempos and tunings on other live versions

"It's the rhythmic subdivision. 1/4 means that if you play a note on beat 1 and 3, you'll hear the repeats on beat 2 and 4 (i.e. new years day).

1/8 means that if you play a note on 1, 2, 3 and 4, you'll hear the delay on 1and, 2and, 3and and 4and (i.e. I will follow).

Dotted eight means that if you play 8 notes you hear 16th notes, or if you play a note on one, you hear the repeat on 1e-an-d (that is the 4th 16th of beat 1, and it's also the most frequent delay edge uses, i.e. Bad, Streets, Pride etc)." (Edo on delay types)
