Is there any way to determine the BPM for each track in iTunes?

    Seriously... this *****. Come'on we buy the music from iTunes; they have that info already. Just give it to us when we download!

    Although I have not personally used it, some people on this Forum have recommended the 3rd partty program Beatunes BPM Detection. 

     

    It has Mac and Windows versions, and is designed to work seamlessly with iTunes.  It has a free trial version if you want to take it for a test drive.

    Do they? What makes you think that?

     

    The producer of the song knows it, since it was the producer and artist who decided on how many beats per minute they wanted their creation to be. But why do you believe that iTunes would have it? They may have it, if - if the producer, and music label have given that information to iTunes. But it's not compulsory, there's no law!

     

    You couldn't make it up, could you?

    As far as I can tell the Gracenote CDDB database, which iTunes draws on doesn't record BPM, though now they have removed their web-based search forms it is much harder to confirm exactly what info. they do hold for any given CD.
