I purchased this software to count the BPMs in my iTunes library. I analyzed the library and the BPMs do not show in iTunes. Suggestions?

    Hey Rick,

    Do you see the BPM column in iTunes at all?
    Or is the column empty?

    Cheers,

    I do have the BPM column as part of my iTunes view.

    Thanks. What will this do Hendrik? Essentially, at the end, if I follow this process, should the BPM's show in my iTunes?

    It will send your beaTunes logs to me so I can look at them to try to figure out what went wrong. If there is indeed a way to figure that out (perhaps just a misconfiguration), I can hopefully make a suggestion how to make the BPM show up in iTunes.

    Hey Rick,

    thanks. Your logs don't show that you actually had beaTunes analyze your files. It seems that you have run an inspection, but not an analysis.

    To get the BPM to show in iTunes, I'd recommend to

    • Restart beaTunes (because there is something odd at the end of the logs).
    • Just to test, select a couple of songs and then right-click and in the context menu, select Analyze.
    • In the dialog that pops up, select only the BPM task, deselect all others.
    • Start the analysis
    • After the analysis ran through, check in iTunes, whether your BPM values appeared.

    This won't take long and perhaps is a simple solution.

    Cheers,

    That worked on most. Had some trouble intiially with the Chris Brown songs, but worked for the other dozen I tried. Thanks. To analyze all of my songs for BPM only, can I highlight them all, right click, select analyze, only BPM and select analyze? Would that work to post BPMs to all songs?

    Yes, it would. It's probably easier to just open Tools -> Analyze All.
