Advanced Autoplaylist criteria - more tempo control
Posted: Tue May 23, 2006 11:00 am
I just discovered MM and I love it!! "Thanks" to the developers.
I'm interested in the advanced features in the autoplaylist. I need to generate an auto playlist which selects random songs based on tempo, BUT I'm not after ALL fast, or ALL slow. I need to be able to format the playlist so it picks random songs in the following tempo format:
(...or whatever format I want. Then the format would repeat.)
See what I mean? Hope this makes sense. I basically need more tempo control. I searched the forums and can't find anything that allows this.

Isn't it as simple as just select those tempos you want? Or do you mean that your songs are not tagged with tempo?

No he wants songs like this
and then start over with

I see, well that's not possible. Perhaps through a script though?

Lowlander is correct. That's exactly what I'm after.
I'd be fine with using a script, but I don't know how to code this. Guess I'm hoping this feature might be useful to enough other people that someone will program it.

Maybe calculate BPM? I may be trying to make MM work like some of my old DJ software but I'm using MM to DJ with so it would be awesome to have some of those features.

the only scripts i know as of now to work with tempo and bpm are already in the All Scripts thread.
and work in combo or seperately.
the tempo one needs the bpm in the song to add the tempo.
so the bpm script is to add the bpm but you have to add the numbers yourself. the script did not work for my win98 computer so i modified it.
by changing a line or a few words. but try the orginal script in your computer and if it does not work the way you want or can not get it working then try the one i adjusted to work. but there is no automatic bpm scripts just the manual ones.

Try MixMeister's BPM analyzer. Works on mp3 and it's free.

I have MixMeister... There's just no way I know of to add the BPM to the tag automatically.

I think MixMeister automatically adds BPM to the mp3files...

Just rescan the files or set up the file-monitor to monitor the directory where the analysed files are.

BPM wouldn't solve the problem as I assume that BigBass already has his files tagged with the proper tempo's.
A script would require to randomly select a song for a tempo and than move to the next tempo on the tempo order list and select randomly a song for that tempo. Some form of maximum list size is probably required to make sure that the list doesn't enter a eternal loop and probably a verify duplicate file on addition would make it a great script.

Are you looking to select tracks based on their BPM value, or the Tempo field?
