In the DJTT inbox today was a new DJ-oriented tool released on GitHub, BPM. It’s a really simple tool that lives in the status bar for OS X users that allows you to quickly find the BPM of a song just by tapping. It’s a simple Tap BPM tool, but it’s awesome. Read more and download below.
Being able to tell the BPM of a song without a metronome or Tap BPM tool is about as difficult as telling the key of a song without software or a musical instrument to use as a baseline. You can usually get close – but to be accurate every time, you’ll want a tool of some kind.
BPM does exactly that, and nothing more. Download it on GitHub, open up the app, and now you’ve got an icon in your menubar that you can click on in time with the music, and it will figure out the BPM of your clicks. After a few seconds, it resets.
Simple! Easy! These are the types of digital DJ tools that we love to see.
Anyone know of an equivalent tool for Windows users? Let us know in the comments so we can share it for our PC friends!
