Hi, I have a pretty big music library (390Gb) so that might be the reason I have issues.
Everytime I use Beatunes and want to analyze my library it takes several days (really) to do so. It then takes also a very long time (more than an hour sometimes to shut down the app and during the time Beatunes is in use my computer slows down until it sometimes freezes completely and I am force to force quit everything.
Any idea why it could be?

    How many songs is that?

    analyze my library it takes several days (really)

    Analysis is expected to take long, however, inspection should be quick. Just to be sure: do you mean analysis or inspection?

    Any idea why it could be?

    Perhaps the internal database is in bad shape. Have you tried repairing it? It's possible via the Tools menu.

    Hi, so my library is 31.887 tracks
    Analysis takes a very long time (days)
    inspection takes about 20 to 30 mn
    I'll try the repair and be back to you.

    Hi, so I did rebuilt my library and just when I thought everything was fin (I mean it takes still several days to analyze the whole library), I started to receive different kinds of error messages.
    Thank for your help and happy new year!

    Analysis is a slow process, since all audio data must be loaded and processed. This will never be fast. But you should not need to do this more than once.

    Inspection on the other hand should be fairly quick.

    Please send your logs (

    it looks like the logs were produced too long after the error occurred. Please reproduce the issue and then send fresh logs right away.

    Thank you,

    thanks for the new screenshots and logs. The internal database is corrupted. This can happen when beaTunes is not properly shut down.

    To fix this, open the Tools menu and choose Repair Database. It is possible that the repair fails. Then you will have to rebuild the database based on what's in your audio files. If you have checked the option Embed non-iTunes fields (in beaTunes general preferences) before analysis, most values can be restored. For more info see

    Hope this helps,
