How would you use a metranome to keep track of the speed on your sweeping and make records to beat. Would you say if you could do a full minor sweep in (hypothetically) 2 BPM and try to beat that?

Well, the way I figure it, for a 12 note major sweep is 6 notes per beat, so 2 beats per sweep up and down, e.g. the same as 16th triplets in note count. Is that right?
