    BPMs are out of wack: Imported PC itunes songs into Macbook Itunes
    used the network sharing feature to transfer about 4 gbs of music that was saved in my PC itunes music folder. I just got a Mac about 2 weeks ago and i have begin transferring music. I Imported directly into my mac's itunes library for storage and the bpms are all crazy.

    Use Rane's Serato for bpm plotting. It is much better than Mixmeister.

    I know these were songs imported to itunes. i use itunes to create playlists and smart playlist off of bpms. i know now i no longer need the meister. i just need itunes to populate the correct bpms. and u are correct, serato does great bpm detection.

    any bpm detectors?
    i will delete songs and need to reimport at higher stereo bit rate anyway. instead of directly importing, thinking of just moving itunes music folder to desktop from my external, then drop in a bpm detector that will retag so when i import into itunes, boom...all is fixed.

    any good bpms detectors that do batch processing?

    just serato. it now supports dual core processors and will calculate 2 bpm's at once

    i think it has something to do with when the bpm's are added. i can see that some of my bpm's in itunes are way out of wack, from when i used beatunes, and not serato. i need to redo my library anyway because of all the changes. i'll tell ya though, about 22000 of my 27000 songs on my external have bpm's. I doubt i've played that many in itunes for it to have calculated.
