Free BeatGauge Licenses
I'm giving away 10 free BeatGauge licenses to beaTunes 4 users. If you're interested, please simply leave a comment on http://blog.beatunes.com/2015/05/free-beatgauge-licenses.html. The first 10 comments, that are verifiable from people who have purchased beaTunes 4 for OS X, qualify.
Please note, that BeatGauge requires OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).
To give you an idea what BeatGauge looks like in action, here's a little demo video (this is not speeded up in any way):
I'm also quite happy to report, that a British customer had the following to say about version 1.0.0 (current version is 1.0.1):
Astonishingly good, accurate and easy to use ★★★★★

This just works. I used to use an old piece of software (ltjBPM) to determine BPM. This involved listening to each track and tapping the space bar in time with the music. Each track took about a minute to do. My 4571 tracks would have taken seven and a half hours to finish, but I would have given up long before that. BeatGauge did all 4571, with no interference or supervision from me, in roughly seven and a half minutes and never made a mistake. For interest, I tried to trick it to see what, if any, error messages came back, or if it would crash. I fed it one-second orchestra stings (Message: Unable to determine BPM). I fed it voice memos (Message: Unable to determine BPM). I fed it DRM-protected tracks (Message: Illegal operation. DRM protected?). Finally, I moved the parent file of a track to break its link with its listing in iTunes. (Message: File does not exist). None of these tricks would be done by anyone in day-to-day use, but it is interesting to see that the software coped with everything I tried and came back with an accurate result. The best software is simple, accurate and works with as little user supervision as possible. BeatGauge is one of those apps. Brilliant.
