When I analyse my music it doesn't automatically write the bpm to itunes on new songs - it is fine on the older ones. What do I do to fix this?

    That's odd.
    Any chance you can send me your logs?

    Thanks for the logs.

    It seems that the iTunes automation server is not running properly. That thing is required to be working, if another program wants to communicate with iTunes.

    If restarting your computer does not deliver the desired result, re-installing iTunes and then restarting your computer probably does the job.

    In any case, when you run the analysis again on songs that have BPM values that have not been propagated, please make sure you turn on the option to force writing in the general preferences. Otherwise beaTunes will not even attempt to talk to iTunes.
