Hey people,

i was wondering if anyone could help me with the BPM Function on itunes.
i have it in the bar at the top, but how do i get it to read the bpm of all my songs? do i need to play all the songs all the way through? (9000+ tracks will take a long time!)

thanks for looking, hope you can help me.

many thanks

    itunes doesn't figure out the BPM for you.

    You either figure it out yourself and type it in manually for each song, or use something like "MixMeister BPM Analyzer", which works on MP3 files.

    thats what i thought, however it seems to have figured out the BPM for one album, and no more?

    any explanation?

    i use mixmiester normally, howeverthought this would be quicker if it managed to work,

    Not sure how that one album got it's BPM filled in, but I've seen that before on some MP3 downloads. And it's usually wrong - I run it through MixMeister again.

    If it was a CD your ripped using itunes, maybe Gracenote had the info?

    Hm, I just checked my files in iTunes (116 GB)
    And aprox 95% of them have the BPM value. Wow.
    I noticed that the iTunes store bought DRM protected 128kbps .aac files - did not have it.

    I've applied iVolume on all of the files. Maybe it is that program that have calculated the BPM?, cause it didn't work on the DRM protected iTunes files.
