Won't find or add music

I am trying the trial version to see it work, but it didn't do anything with my iTunes library. And when I try to add songs manually, it goes back to the app, but no songs are added. Also, I notice the types don't include MP3 so I am using all files, but are only those types supported?

    Hey Bob,

    what kind of library are you using and how are you adding tracks?
    See https://blog.beatunes.com/2015/01/different-libraries-for-different... for details.

    iTunes library.

    I somehow got it to work and it analyzed the music. The BEA GUI shows the BPM, but it does not reflect in iTunes. What do I have to do to get that data updated there?

    To be clear, I see the BPM in iTunes when I do get info, but they don't show until I do that. Every song is blank until I right-click, and click Get Info. As soon as that screen shows, the BPM shows up on the list. How do I get the entire list to show them?

    Hey Bob,

    sounds a lot like you are using a folder-based collection, when you should be using an iTunes-based collection. Can you please send a screenshot of your beaTunes general preferences, just to confirm?

    Yes, it wouldn't do anything with the iTunes at first, but somehow it worked this time.

    But the BPM don't show up unless I either "Get Info" on the song or play it.
