BPM help pls!


#1

Hey guys new to the forum and new to MP3Tag. Great product! I'm a DJ and was wondering if there was a way using actions or some other function within the software to get rid of the 2 digits after the decimal point in a BPM field. PC Itunes reads them, but my mac that I use the majority of my music on reads the BPM's funny that are brought over from Mixmeister Beat Analyzer. They appear with a 2 decimal point number which Mac doesn't like. I wanted to know if there was something I could create by way of actions or something to automate taking the point (.) and 2 decimal numbers out the end of the BPM. Mac will read fine if there are only 2 numbers. I don't care much about whether it rounds up or down properly. It's just a gauge and for cataloging purposes.

I searched the forums all night on a hunt to figure out to maybe create an action for it, but I am completely stumped. Any help will be appreciated.

Hello and welcome to the forums!

Just use an action to fix your BPM fields.

Action #1:
Action type: Replace with regular expressions
Field: BPM
Regular expression: (.+).\d{2}
Replace matches with: $1

[ ] case-sensitive comparison
