BPM accuracy

I really appreciate all efforts you are putting into this project... however, to be brief - getting 70,7 BPM for "Prodigy's Firestarter" and 139,5 for "Sade's Is it a Crime" makes the whole BPM feature USELES (!). Thats my 50 cents.

    And I have used recommended "rayshoot" 70-140 with max accuracy... Lame

    Well, no algorithm is always right - unfortunately.

    At least i can solve the "Firestarter" bpm mystery...... despite official bpm (140) it "seems" to be slightly faster......(self tapping 141-142, Mixmeisters algorithm 141,7, Traktor 70,7*2= 141,4 (100%))

    .... using preset 70-140 sadly (i WISH there would be custom values) does NOT cover this.

    as always with bpm.detection, either it's completely WRONG (happens), or you just have to DOULBE or HALF the calculated bpm (most common scenario)

    The best way, despite looping and calculating bpm on sample-base yourself,.... make selective! analyses. E.g. one run with 70-140 for Hiphop, next run with 90-180bpm for electronic stuff...... still errors, but less.
