Hi, brand new to beaTunes. I use Swinsian to listen to my music, and I would like to use beaTunes mainly for the BPM analysis. Silly question probably, but once I have the tracks analyzed, how do I write the BPM to the metadata, so the BPM shows up in Swinsian? Thanks in advance.

* beaTunes: 5.2.19
* JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM
* Version:
* Vendor: BellSoft
* OS: Mac OS X 10.16, x86_64
* Library: FileSystem
* Memory: 92m - 1024m

    When using a folder-based library (which apparently you do), beaTunes always write BPM values to the files (if the format is supported). So all you need to do is to direct Swinsian to re-scan the files for new metadata. It probably does do this on its own.
