MIXMEISTER

Mixmeister BPM is a free download bit of software that I am trying out.

You download it form here: www.mixmeister.com/bpmanalyzer.

All you do is drag and drop your music files (*.mp3 etc) and it starts to calculate the beats per minute (BPM) or tempo of the track!

It takes about 10 secs / track, so to do my collection will take over 30 hours!

Once it is done, the tags are amended, so all I should do (when this Herculean task is finished) is get MediaMonkey to rescan the music library.

Then I shall be able to select tracks by tempo as well as key — making playlists and so on.  I can hardly wait!  I’ll let you know if this is worthwhile!
