    Hey there,

    what kind of library did you create when you first started beaTunes? An iTunes-based one? That would be the one you want. More info can be found at http://blog.beatunes.com/2015/01/different-libraries-for-different-...

    Once you are certain you have an iTunes based library, follow the instructions on https://www.beatunes.com/en/itunes-automatic-bpm-detection.html

    Hope this helps,

    I have all my songs into BeaTunes - now i need the category BPM to show up in my itunes...... I have followed all of you previous posts and re-downloaded iTunes - still nothing.

    Hi Lesley,

    That is, you ran an analysis, so that the BPM showed up in beaTunes?
    On an iTunes-based library, and the BPM don't show up in iTunes?
    Is the BPM column visible at all in iTunes?
    See the screenshot attached for info how to enable the column.



    PS: Please simply answer to this discussion instead of creating new ones. Makes it easier. Thank you.

    I guess you mean the column?

    it's just not populating

    And the column is empty.

    It's also not sycronizing with new musivc i download.

    In the File menu, select Synchronize...

    Two question:

    1. Did you run an analysis in beaTunes?
    2. Do you see BPM values in beaTunes?
