Since I upgraded to Lion, this software no longer works (PowerPC only). Blacktree, it would be great if you could update this little gem for Intel! I haven't been able to find any other recent software that's as simple as this. Auto-bpm detectors often give incorrect results, especially if the bpm changes during the song or if the song has many beat subdivisions or unusual time signatures (e.g. 6/8).

Does anyone have a contact address for the folks at Blacktree?

I loved this and used it all the time, and having trouble finding a decent replacement. Would love an pay for a Lion version!

This is a total bummer. I can't find a contact email or phone number for Blacktree and my iTunesBPM-inseptor isn't working. This was the creates little tool!

Looks like this fails now with iTunes v.7.3. Any chance it might get updated? This is the best/easiest solution I've come across to set a track's BPM setting.

A quick and simple way to enter the tempi of iTunes tracks. I use it on every new song I add to my library.

I've used QuicKeys to streamline things by setting a keystroke that clicks the “Set” button and then advances to the next song in the playlist, so I can basically work through an entire playlist with two fingers--one to tap the tempo and one to set and move on.

One feature I'd love to see added is an audible “ping” of some kind when the tempo reaches its “bluest” (i.e., when I've tapped enough that the app is confident of the tempo); staring at that little number and trying to gauge the “grey/blue boundary” can be a little eye-crossing....

Great now it works with Tiger with 1.0.2. Although tapping on the scrollpad to count does't seem to acknowledge the bpm like in the earlier version. Musn't grumble!!!

Good little app, but I wish it played a bpm sound like a metronome. It would be much easier to use then!

Great app! I'm in a band that does covers, and on stage we use a click track. So in iTunes I use this little guy to get the bpm so that we can use it on stage.

hiltonspinner had trouble on 25 Feb 2008
I am having trouble figuring out how this thing works. Every comment seems to show that others aren't having trouble...Why does it start at 60 bpm...How long do you tap the key for it to figure out the bpm and do you start with it at 60 or move it to 1 to begin the counting? Any help would be great.
Thanks,
