BeaTunes won't open in Mac Ventura

I downloaded BeaTunes to check out the auto BPM option but I keep receiving 2 errors when trying to open it. I've tried numerous times and not sure what the issue is. I am trying the free version and I believe I had a version of this years ago, that version was removed prior to trying this free version, not sure if any of that matters. These are the errors I'm receiving:
- Fatal Error: Database migration failed
- Fatal error Please restart BeaTunes Unable to acquire JDBC connection

Any ideas?

    I ended up typing "delete" > ~/Library/Application\ Support/beaTunes/Database/delete in the terminal window and it allowed it to open. It appears to be syncing up now.

    I was able to start analyzing tracks. It started out going very fast and was flying through the tracks. However, it has slowed down drastically, taking over 30 mins to analyze 130 tracks right now.

    Any ideas on why it slowed down?

    Not really. If this problem persisted, please upload some logs (after analysis).
