Provides automatic beats-per-minute detection using computational music analysis algorithms. Analyzes your collection of music files and iTunes playlists and exports the resulting BPM values to iTunes or the MP3 ID3v2 tag. This is essential software for professional DJs.

• Fast and high precision analysis
• Write BPM to MP3 ID3v2 tag
• Import playlists from iTunes
• Export bpms to iTunes
• Drag and drop music into the app
• Analyzes all file formats that iTunes can read, as well as Ogg Vorbis, Flac and Flac Vorbis (for OSX 10.7.3 or higher).

This app can analyze any files that can be decoded by iTunes (except for files that are protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM)). Exporting BPM values to iTunes directly (rather than using Id3v2) is only allowed for tracks that are imported as playlists.

Some reviews from users:

* Stefaninous: "Con l'ultimo aggiornamento é una cannonata" (4.3.0)

If you experience an issue, please submit a report (preferably also to me directly) so that I can fix it.

If you experience issues with the app, please ask for assistance ([email protected]).

If there are any features you would like to see in Beat Counter please let me know.

Not accurate, does not always write to the tag or iTunes Lib - I have tried several different methods, trying to get this to work. Queing the library crashes the app, every.single.time. This happens even with a very small library of less than 100 songs. The BPMs reported are different depending on the way you process the song. One song is reported 100 BPMs higher . . . this seems too far off to be useful for any use. I want my money back, definately NOT worth $24.

Review by synntropy

not worth 25$ - Wow. I downloaded this and started using right away. I should have looked closer at reviews first. Every time I add songs the app freezes after analysing a few. I restart it and try again and the same thing happens. It’s not easy to use or nagivate and doesn’t provide any instruction for use of trouble shooting. The controls ARE relatively intuitve and I figured it out quickly but it’d still be nice to have some direction. You can't easily select multiple songs as control+shift and control+command selections functions arent’ enabled. I wouldn’t spend more than 5 bucks on this thing…if even that. Save your money.
