Converting every file to mp3 soley in order to calculate the BPM seems like overkill. BPM is a property of the audio, not the audio file format. The MixMeister app must decompress the mp3 in order to find the BPM of the audio content.
This comes back to my original wishlist request. I need something that can detect BPM of audio from any source format.
I have no problem with doing a bit of scripting. Perhaps the best solution is to make a script that converts the flac file to an mp3 snippet, calls the MixMeister app to insert the BPM tag, copy it to the MM database and delete the file. Still a bit of a work-around, but it's all automatic that way.
Can the MixMeister app be called from a VB script? If not, there is still a strong case for a generic BPM plugin.
