BPM calculations often need adjustments

I have tried both algorithms and tried to frame the BPM calculations, but end up having to manually perform a Tap Beat on 20% or more of the analyzed songs to get the proper BPM.

Any chance you could choose a more reliable algorithm?

    Hi Glenn,

    Thanks for your message.

    Unfortunately, beat detection algorithms aren't perfect. With beaTunes your best bet is Rayshoot with a BPM range setting of 70-140. I hope to include an improved BPM alg in beaTunes 3, but can't say for sure at this point in time.
