An odd little sound program, but don't let that put you off. there's nothing for you to do/interact with, other than listen. all the sounds are built in. open the app and it runs automatically. the choices you do have are simple to understand, and are fun to play with.
letting it do its thing in the background as you potter about the house, or tinkering with options are equally valid pastimes. outstanding work.

I've upgraded(?) to snow leopard and am now using v2 of this awesome piece of manual bpm finder software.
see my previous review for some details.
i'd like to add this... the bad thing about EVERY automatic bpm finder out there is that they don't always get every track correct. and i include dead straight bpm techno tracks, not serato, tracktor, ableton... trust me, i've used many of them.
so you end up with a load of tracks with the wrong information. no good to me.
the absolutely cool point point about ltjBPM is that you know your bpm is correct because you did it yourself.
open itunes, play a playlist of stuff you want to bpm, open ltjbpm, stay on the ltjbpm program... tap the full stop in time with the beat, do it for as long as you want but minimum 8 beats, when you're happy hit semi-colon, this will add that bpm to that track, next hit apostrophe to go to the next track, start tapping the full stop again (if the track starts beatless tap the right bracket to skip forward. do it again. do it again.

Anyway, it seems to be down, the website, right now... i hope it comes back, and he charges a fiver, because it's great.

Excellent. I'd rather use this than an automated analyser. It's still the best manual bpm application. i don't think there is a better one. i have used all, or at least nearly all, even if it is in ppc. (1.2 version not 2, 2 requires 10.5, i'm on 10.4). the automated ones just do not deliver good results, unless the track is already dead straight - ie electronica at 4/4 tempos 70 to 160 bpm.

I want to support this app but unfortunately Karatunes no longer works. Increasingly, after launch, the only message i get is "An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled.
The application must shut down."
This error message has always appeared since i started using it, but now it's the only thing i get.
Unless this is rectified, or is seen to be being dealt with, i must look elsewhere. No point using software that's unstable. None at all.
