very, very useful!

"Music-Math features 7 conversion functions:
- Tempo: computes the equivalent duration for original and new tempos
- Transpose: converts semitones to Time Stretching values
- Delay: convert tempo to musical duration (ms) or equivalent frequencies (Hz); i.e., for LFOs rates.
- Tap: Tap in the tempo
- Samples: convert duration (in samples) to tempo or tempo to sample duration.
- Notes: convert MIDI notes to equivalent frequencies (Hz)
- SMPTE: add or substract SMPTE value"

Audio Damage Rough Rider is a great free compressor with tons of character if (like me) you're not looking for anything very subtle.
