internally more than one digit is computed, but only one digit
This does not mean that this is a better result. Usually handmade
music does not have constant, but only somewhat constant
tempo. So displaying more precision may be misleading.
I mix dance music which is usually very constant. The pitch control on my CDJs has 0.1% increments, and since most of my music is 125--140 bpm, this means I need one more decimal digit.
It occurs to me that I could claim the bpm was in the range 65--70 and then double each reported valued. (I noticed one song was reported as half the correct value but still with three decimal digits...)
