BPM Counter

BPM Counter is a fast and accurate beats per minute detector for MP3 music. It may be helpful for DJs who need to get information about entire music collection quickly and for any kind of remixing/sampling stuff. Don't waste your time for manual tapping, just navigate to any folder with music and BPM Counter will show all compatible audio files (MP3 and WAV) and start BPM detection automatically. A fairly common mistake with other BPM detectors is that they can halve or double the actual BPM rate, because MP3 files are decoded with lower quality to improve performance. We use broadband audio decoders from Audio Converter Plus to ensure a balance between performance and precision.

Fully Automatic

Since the program is designed to quickly estimate the tempo of several songs placed in one folder, we reduced the number of settings to a minimum. The program interface is made as close as possible to Windows Explorer. You do not need to spend time adding files to the processing list, just select the folder with audio tracks in the left navigation bar and the BPM Counter will do the rest for you.

Fast BPM Detection

Our company has extensive experience in the development of DSP algorithms. Many of them are designed to extract features from a large number of audio files. BPM Counter uses a single pass algorithm to calculate the tempo. It is less accurate than that used in tuneXplorer, but allows you to quickly estimate BPM values. If the program cannot calculate the correct BPM value or an audio file decoding error occurs, then it returns 0. In case of successful calculation, the program returns BPM value with the specified accuracy.

ID3 Tags Support

BPM Counter has the ability to save BPM values in MP3 metadata in accordance with the ID3v2.3 standard. We chose this version of the tags, because it is supported by most programs related to audio processing. By default, saving BPM in tags is disabled, you can enable it in the program settings. Unfortunately, Info tags in WAV files do not allow saving BPM. If you use ID3 format for them, then other programs will not be able to read the data.

GUI and Console Versions

The program interface is DPI-aware and looks equally good on FullHD and 4K displays. If you prefer to work with the console, the command line version is located in the program installation folder. It calculates BPM for a single file and can be called from other programs or BAT files.

Integration

Like all our other programs, BPM Counter has integration with audio utilities that may be useful to you. They will help you to record a new audio track, convert an audio file if it is not supported by the program, adjust the tempo to the desired value.

Totally Free

BPM Counter is completely free. It does not contain any adware, spyware, toolbars and other unwanted software. It does not change the settings of your browser and Windows.
