EA3 for beaTunes 2.1

beaTunes2 logoEA3 for beaTunes 2.1 is out. It does not contain many changes - please see the NOTES.txt if you're interested.

Just like EA2, EA3 offers to use some online resources, but will (most likely) fail with an OnlineDBException.

Alright, here's the obligatory warning: Before downloading and installing this, please make sure you understand what Early Access means:

  • Absolutely no warranty for whatever
  • Features may or may not work, appear, and disappear
  • It may not be possible to migrate data to future or previous versions (even though we make a reasonable effort)
  • This version will cease to function 2 weeks after its release
  • You cannot buy this version

And here are the download links:


This EA version changes beaTunes' internal database layout quite a bit, which takes a while. Do not interrupt this process, even when it takes very long! On OS X, beaTunes 2.0 will not be able to use the database anymore, after you ran beaTunes 2.1. If you intend to try 2.1 and then go back to 2.0, make sure you back up the database before you try 2.1 (it's in ~/Library/Application Support/beaTunes/Database)!

Please provide feedback!

Does not work for me on XP, would not Inspect the library. Is there a log file I can send you?

Yes, it should be in [userhome]\Local Settings\Application Data\tagtraum industries\beaTunes\logs. Please just zip the whole folder and send it to support along with a comment on how things fail.

OK, I got it working, I uninstalled it and reinstalled, working fine now.

Suggestion, on the duplicates it would be nice if it could list them all in the window and you simply put a check on the ones you want to delete. It would make going through them much faster. Is this possible?
