oh dear I am not getting on very well with this script :(
I have run MixMeister BPM thingy over quite a few artists - and Rescanned those in MM - and the BPMs show alright in MM.
I have installed the script and it shows in my Tools?Extension list.

Now where do I find the drop down list.
I can see nothing added to Tools>Options>Player>Auto-DJ.
Auto-DJ is enabled.
Play>Auto-DJ is ticked.
Where am I going wrong.

Well you're on the right panel and as far as I remember there only is one dropdown list.

Alright I found it now thanks trixmoto :)
The trouble is this wretched HUGE FONTS issue which is so tiresome yet very few people understand the anguish it causes.
This is a prime example; the drop down list did not display in way that it could be read, so I failed to see the AutoDJ entry - right at the bottom :roll: .

I have set the tolerance to 150 yet the now playing list shows tracks of merely 73 or 85 BPMs.
I have never made any filters.

I have spent a lot of time on this but as yet fail to see any benefit to me :-?

Well if the tolerance is set that high then it would be just choosing any track randomly, I'd recommend setting it much much lower.

Hello trixmoto, I have been playing with this BPM malarky over the past couple of days.
Firstly I have had to run that MixMeister thingy across all my library- and that is taking forever; I have started leaving it running over night now. Still not finished.

Interesting early results are that my lowest readings (65-75) are coming from the 1972 Bowie LP: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. Whereas it is not reporting anything over 200BPM. (Why?) And I can see no real pattern of Artist nor Genres at this level.

And I think I am getting the hang of this Tolerance business now. Following your suggestion I have set it to just 3 and I can now see future tracks at the same BPM as the track playing.
When I select a track to play the Auto-DJ then picks tracks at the same BPM as the new track. Clever stuff.
I am no HipHop-DJ but I do make what were always called "mix tapes" and I think this will help in programming the play order in future. Thanks for your help. :)

Well my guess the reason you're not getting anything over 200 BPM is because this is pretty fast, unless you're a big speedcore or gabber music fan. Sometimes the results are wrong by a factor, like twice as fast or twice as slow - this is caused by different time signatures. As the music itself needs to be analysed to count the beats, it will take time to do this.

I haven't tested it yet though.

Hello Bex, Wow this 5yr old software is messy to use. I read and re-read their site instructions but it just didn't want to know. Un-installed it now. Nice idea but sorry to say no good, well, no good to me.

So what program do we use to assign BPM to FLAC files, please.

Yeah, I couldn't get it to work either.... :(
It's the only program I found that claims it can scan FLAC files for BPM.
Advanced Duplicate Find & Fix Find More From Same - Custom Search. | Transfer PlayStat & Copy-Paste Tags/AlbumArt between any tracks.
Tagging Inconsistencies Do you think you have your tags in order? Think again...

trixmoto, I am beginning to get on with this now.
Surprising how once it gets going you tend to hear similar style songs following each other. Neat.
One little tweak I would like please. Any chance you can tell the script not to play tracks that have been played before. Thanks :)

I should be able to include it in the sort order so that it selects unplayed tracks over played tracks.

New version (1.1) is now available to download from my website. I have fixed the selection algorithm so that it favours unplayed tracks.

Hey, Trixmoto, good script. I'd like to request the ability to also choose Auto-Playlists instead of just Filters.
