Yesterday I explained how to add BPM data to iTunes using beaTunes. That works well, it’s free and can batch process your entire library. But I also explained that it sometimes gives weird results. When this happens you can manually assign BPM to individual songs by simply tapping to the rhythm.
Today I found a very cool (and free) app for Mac called BPM Tapper. You basically play a song in iTunes and tap away at the rhythm for a few seconds. Then click a button and it adds the BPM to iTunes.
Simple. Accurate. Cool.
Here’s what the developers say about it:
This free little buddy is used to get BPM’s for your songs into iTunes. Just tap the big button along to the beat of the music and a precise BPM will be given to you. Just tap and all will be revealed. This is your start into a world of perfect BPM playlists.
And here’s a video that shows it in action:
I downloaded it and have been playing with it all day. And I love it.
