"This is the App to get if you want BPM info in your iTunes tracks." Mac Life , June 2011.
Featured in 20 Killer Apps under $20 - Rated 4 out of 5 Stars.

"To that end, the folks at Cadence just released a cheap, but brilliant BPM calculating program. I'd fully expected it to have the same limitations of every other one I've tested. But, I put in a few of the hardest, most frequently inaccurate songsā€“and it got every one of them correct."

    Sandboxing requires that both your library file and your media folder exist in the same location. It should mimic iTunes default folder structure.

    If you use iTunes match , your songs must exist on your machine for Cadence Desktop to analyze them. You should pull down from iCloud the songs you wish to analyze.

    Your iTunes music library must be created in English, German, Italian, Danish, French, Swedish, Spanish, Portuguese or Dutch for it to work with Cadence Desktop. If it is not, your music will not show up.

    DRM protected music can not be analyzed. If you upgrade your iTunes music to iTunes Plus they will analyze just fine however.
