    Default program for accurate BPM's

    just to get some ideas of what everyone uses to get BPM's that seem to be the most accurate what does everyone use to get newly downloaded songs BPM's?

    im on a mac and i use beatunes but im always looking for otehrs for fun. should i use the BPM reader in traktor? (i have traktor 3.3) does this save the bpm in the song tag?

    Oh, for a non sarcastic answer, I use Mixed in Key.

    still have to correct some songs though. *shrugs* still no substitute for manually reading it though.

    I use Mixmeister's BPM Analyzer. It's free from their website and very easy. Open your folder that contains your mp3s and it calculates and saves automatically. They are usually pretty close. Sometimes, however, the BPM is displayed in a long series of numbers, but when loaded to play, change to the actual BPM.

    Welcome to the community, I have found that MixShare does a good job and is pretty accurate. Uses Java so you should be fine.

    As far as Traktor BPM, I do not think this is written to the song tag. Others may be able to verify this in order to confirm.

    oooh it toally stores in BPM tag. traktors TERRIBLE bpm analysis has screwed me over plenty of times.

    I tried to move over to traktor pro a few months ago. and it re-wrote ALL of my bpms. most were incorrect, I might add. (and no, i'm not talking double or half time, i'm talking 120 instead of 127 type problems)

    It was enough to piss me off, have me overwrite the tracks with my backup and exit traktor for good.
