Does anyone know of an iTunes plug-in that will auto-detect a song's BMP and insert it into the file's ID tags?

I, of course, meant BPM...

I love smart playlists, but in order to take my usage to the next level, I need moods and BPMs. I'm assuming I'll have to do moods manually, but what about BPM?

All the software mentioned in that thread is for Windows.

I didn't specify -- I need a Mac solution.

I actually had a Lazyweb post about this same thing a year ago:

In terms of shareware, there's Ask The DJ, where the auto-BPM function is about all the app is good for; it's not even that great at that, but it'll get you by.

If you're looking a little higher end, Traktor DJ Studio will do exactly what you want, and give you a fantastic mixing engine. Might be priced higher than you wanted to go, though.

And for the DIY freeware approach, there's iTunes BPM Inspector, from the same guys who did Quicksilver.

Thanks.

The iTunes BPM inspector is likely the way I'll go. It'll take time, but it's free and works well.

I tried Ask The DJ, but I couldn't find a way to get it to save the BPMs to the files.
