    Default Music Library... Help

    I had a question and did not want to get into the political issues of whats right and wrong...

    I used to DJ back in the day have a Huge Vinyl Library and just got back into DJing again its been 11 years so this is all new to me and digital is something I am learning everyday with my New S4...

    I have a digital Library of over 3000 songs and yes I was a person who got all his music from Torrents I know this is wrong and since then have not Torrented in the last 14 months or so.

    Now that I am trying to learn how to beat match and use BPM's none of my music have BPM's listed Is there a way to find this like a program that would do this or am I stuck doing it manually

    Also My question is what is the best place to purchase music I refuse to Torrent anymore and wanted to know is a record pool frowned upon as well is the quality the same as say iTunes or another site any help would be great

    Ok... I'm gonna get flamed for this, but if you own it on vinyl, either digitize the vinyl or find some way of acquiring the songs, you already bought them once... and in some cases, as I've found with some more recent releases, the vinyl will come with a digital copy for free.

    As far as places to buy music... beatport, juno, trackitdown, etc... there's likely a more comprehensive list in the FAQ.

    If you look on beatport and click on the actual track, it will tell you the bpm and key. Long winded, but whatever

    If you download Itch off the Serato website and analyze all your tracks using it, it will write the BPM to the ID3 tags.
    Mixmeister BPM also works well too, and is free on teh intewebz as well.
