I am thinking about purchasing Beatunes. I m using Itunes on my Microsoft based OS computer. I have the following questions:
- In what fields does Beatunes tags like: language, music type, mood, instruments etc
- Can Beatunes also search and add the release years of the music?
-Does Beatunes automatically add lyrics to the proper field in Itunes?
- What is the best way to let Beatunes search for lyrics (use online source or not, fall back to album song titles or not?)
- What does the Analuze key feature do?
- What does the Analysze key feature do?

Thank you in advance for your help

    Hey there,

    • In what fields does Beatunes tags like: language, music type, mood, instruments etc

    If you are using an iTunes-based library, you can choose whether you want beaTunes to embed those (non-iTunes) values into your files or not. See https://blog.beatunes.com/2013/10/so-where-exactly-does-beatunes-st...
    If you choose to embed the values, language, for example would be stored in the TLAN field of an mp3 file. I'm not sure what you mean with "music type". Mood is stored in custom text fields, instruments as well, etc.

    • Can Beatunes also search and add the release years of the music?

    How exactly do you define release year?
    beaTunes can look up "years", but your mileage may vary.

    -Does Beatunes automatically add lyrics to the proper field in Itunes?

    beaTunes can do a web search for lyrics and add the results for your personal use. That said, it being a web search, this is nothing one should really rely upon.

    What is the best way to let Beatunes search for lyrics (use online source or not, fall back to album song titles or not?)

    In all honesty: The best way is to use another application. This is why lyrics related features are not advertised anywhere on the site.

    • What does the Analuze key feature do?

    It analyzes what key a piece of music is in. E.g. C minor.

    Hope this helps,
