The faster/more energetic a song, the higher the bpm. For example: bpm >= 140 for high energy, good for workouts, etc. 1. Add some smart playlists based on bpm 2. Use MixMeister BPM Analyser (free!) to automatically add the BPM information to your entire MP3 collection. 3. Rescan in mt-daapd You can use the same method to find medium energy, low energy, etc. Andy 6th March 2006 at 4:12 am #4066 rpeddeParticipant But is there any software for bpm detection that works in linux? Or mac? I’ve found a couple “tap based” bpm detectors, but I want to just scan my whole corpus and do it all automatically. 6th March 2006 at 10:16 pm #4067 ajayreParticipant I don’t know. I use Win2000/XP so I didn’t look around for anything else. Andy Author Posts Log In Register Lost Password Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
