Description:

Easy, fast, customizable, manual BPM tagging for iTunes users with keyboards. Never automatic; always accurate, and now for macOS Sierra!

The preferences panel allows you to customize the keyboard shortcuts for every feature:

- Count one beat
- Export measured BPM to the current iTunes track
- Reset the BPM counter
- Play/Pause iTunes
- Select the Next track in iTunes
- Jump the iTunes play head forward 10 seconds
- Jump the iTunes play head back 10 seconds
- iTunes Volume up
- iTunes Volume down
- Rate {5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0} stars in iTunes

ltjBPM also includes complete documentation, accessible via the Help > ltjBPM Help menu item.

Other tap-based BPM counters are decent for measuring a track or two, but fall short when you want to measure a larger number of songs. For certain genres and usage patterns, automatic BPM analysis tools are adequate, but none can predict your personal preferences.

ltjBPM keeps you in control.

Praise for previous versions of ltjBPM:

- "Ten tracks ltjBPMed in 100 seconds. Nothing like it!"
- "It's easily the best bpm program out there. and i'm including the auto ones."

As of this writing, no crash report for ltjBPM has ever been received by Apple or forwarded to the author, for this or any previous version offered through the Mac App Store.

Solid little tool - I've been using ltjBPM for ages, and was suprised and happy to find it in the app store for a price, so I could pay the Dev for making pretty much exactly the tool I wanted. This *does not* automagically BPM your tracks. I've tried quite a few of those tools, and generally they fail at everything that isn't super simple and straightforward 4/4 beats (ie, almost everything in my library). I'm much happier to use a tool to do a manual tap count, that automates the parts of the process that slowed me down (editing the itunes metadata). I can blow through a new album, or handful of beatport purchases in a few minutes, with almost no mousing about. And I can trust that the bpms I end up with a trustable.
