I'm using Tangerine for many years now. This day I've checked a lot of BPMs manually and it was very disappointing that a lot of Punk Rock songs have only the half BPM. I compared it with beaTunes and that is much more accurate (when turning of the online ressources).

IM a dj now for about the last 6 years and this is a life saver, sure like anything its not perfect.. but the BPM park rocks, is counts the BPM and then tags it, the accuracy if it so far to my knowledge is about 98% and if its off it off by alot like 200. but thats fine I just enter those by hand. I have over 75000 songs so I saved about a years worth of work.. loading BPM's by hand... a must buy for dj's

As a DJ, this helps me put together playlists in iTunes. Unfortunately, it gets the BPMs wrong a little too often and I end up using a Dashboard widget I downloaded to tap the BPMs in . . .

Then again, the BPM counters on my CD decks aren't always perfect either. Maybe there's never going to be a near-perfect BPM counter -- well, except your own ears and a stopwatch.

Two things-

I don't like that the software immediately begins analyzing my library. I tried to stop the analysis, but it only let me pause it. Perhaps there is a way to stop analyzing the songs, but it was not readily apparent (to me).

Also, the program gave me a number of 5 digit bpm results. ex. Blondie's "Rapture" resulted in a bpm of 30272!

Again, maybe it's me, but I've experienced the 2nd comment with other bpm programs. I hate that.

Tangerine! is the tool that was missing for my Nike + iPod kit. It saves me tons of time creating playlists for my runs. Tangerine! can create 5 of them in a minute. For me, the best way to do it, is to first narrow the choice by genre. I really like the fact that I can create complex playlists by adding them one to another (press option and the "+" button) to really fit my workout. The BPM analyzing is rather good, in fact better than what I expected. I have to halve the BPM on some songs once in a while but other than that, the app is rock solid and works flawlessly. And the UI is a real treat to the eye too.

Hi There,

I do check MacUpdate comments once in a while to see what people are saying, but I don't do it often enough. Please send us support inquiries directly if you wish to see matters addressed more promptly.

Apparently Tangerine! cannot find the tunes...

According to Apple "-43" is "fnfErr = -43, /*File not found*/", if you guys are using standard error codes.

Sorry for not posting details earlier.

Hmmm I meant to post this as a reply to my previous comment, MU's login broke the redirect. Sorry, maybe an MU admin can modify this?

I store my music library on a network drive. Tangerine doesn't seem to like that, it gave an error on all the tracks. This is unusable for me until it starts supporting remote drives. I really don't see why it doesn't work, iTunes is opened and can play the tunes just fine, the share is mounted.

Tangerine is a great concept... but for the steep price I'd expect better analyzing capabilities and better AI (or shall we call it common sense?). I had Eric Serra's “Deep Blue Dream” from the soundtrack for “The Big Blue” mixed together with Elvis Presley's “Heartbreak Hotel.” Come again??

I love this app! It's got a nice clean UI that compliments iTunes while remaining an individual and it's icon is one of the few applications where I don't have an extreme desire to change it. Very nicely done!

Features, it does exactly what it's supposed to do with no hiccups. It's extremely easy to use and, what's more, extremely useful.

As for stability, The previous version of this app was able to process 20,000 songs in about 24 hours with my G4 PowerBook (1.5GHz Processor, 1.5GB of RAM) and with my MacBook Pro (2.33GHz Processor, 2GB of RAM) it's able to do 21,000 songs in about 4 hours.

So for those of you out there with massive music libraries like myself, no worries you can set this going and leave it for the afternoon and before you can blink it will be done!

Fantastic app!
