I am unable to synchronize to my music library.
I uploaded my log at about 9:30, US Eastern time. Screen capture of error message attached.
"An Error occurred:
Synchronizarion was aborted.
Decibel change must be finite (illegal argument)"
I use iVolume 3.9.0 to set the iTunNORM tags in my library -
MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2021)
Apple M1 Max
macOS Monterey 12.5.1 (21G83)

    thanks. Could you please try to sync again and upload your logs afterwards (in the app: Help -> Upload Logs).

    Hey Dave,

    thanks for the logs.

    Can you please download and install the latest dev snapshot from and let me know, whether it fixes the issue?

    Hi, I have the same problem with the same error message, but with Windows 10 21h2 .
    Should I "Could you please try to sync again and upload your logs afterwards (in the app: Help -> Upload Logs)." or do you have another latest dev snapshot for Windows that I should try & then reply "whether it fixes the issue"?

    Please update to beaTunes v5.2.30. It fixes the issue (for Windows as well).
