So I’m in deep with my Mac. I’ve turned my back on Mozilla and Camino and am loving Safari; I’m slowly turning to the bubblesome cuteness of iChat over Fire; I’m loving iTunes 4 and new improvedness; I’ve just gone wireless; my ageing PowerBook seems faster than ever; I’m drinking Steve’s Kool Aid in huge splashy gulps.
One of the many tiny unadvertised features in the new iTunes is the ability to set beats-per-minute (BPM) for each track in its info. At least, I think this is new. Could be handy, I thought, for automatically creating playlists of similar tempo songs. But how, Steve, how do I work out what a song’s BPM is? A quick search on VersionTracker and voila! The fabulous iTunes-BPM Inspector. Just tap along to the current song and it works out, and sets, the BPM for you. It’s insane, but wonderfully so.
