I'm exploring the possibilities to implement the energy levels of tracks in my workflow.
Now it is Beatunes - Itunes - Serato.

I use Beatunes for analysing everything but BPM.
I create my (mostly smart) playlists in Itunes.
I use the comment section to tag tracks.
I do the bpm analysis in Serato.

Now I'm lacking the info of the energy level in Serato.
I don't want to mess up my comment section.

How can I use Beatunes energy level analysis in this workflow?

    Frankly, I have no ready-made solution for you.
    Does Serato see the "custom" tags supported in beaTunes?

    Hello Hendrik,

    Thank you for your email.
    Unfortunately, Serato doesn't see the tags.

    That's truly not a whole lot to work with. :-/

    You could create a beaTlet to create some custom routine to copy the energy value somehow into your comment field (or some other field) in a non-destructive way.

    It would be helpful if I could decide on what field I could inject the
    info.

    For example that I put the energy level into the grouping field.

    Out of the box, that's not supported by beaTunes.
    You'd have to write some code.
