itunes bpm detection


The BPM (beats per minute) field in iTunes has bothered me since it was introduced in version 4.0; there are some ways to get BPM information into iTunes, but no easy ways — and I’m all about the easy ways.

However, a new patent reveals that Apple has patented the idea of running fast to fast music, which is kinda stupid to allow a patent on, but if it brings along with it an automated way to get BPM information out of the tracks and into the tag metadata — and then into a smart playlist — I’m on board.
