Get Bpm?

13 posts in this topic

I was wondering if it was possible to get the BPM(Beats per minute) from a audio file? Maybe there some DLL out there with some function to make this possible. I have no clue, just wanted some input from you guys. Thanks.

I have not rentured into the dll calls yet, but you should be able to use this.

I was wondering if it was possible to get the BPM(Beats per minute) from a audio file? Maybe there some DLL out there with some function to make this possible. I have no clue, just wanted some input from you guys. Thanks.

No expertise here, just a thought: the kind of file that drives electronic instruments, like MIDI, might have something like "beats per minute" actually recorded as a parameter in them somewhere, but an MP3 or AAC file wouldn't. I think with those you would have to examine the data, after lossy decompression no less, and mathematicaly extract the repeatitive main "beat" from all the other frequencies and "beats" in a typical song. All way over my head mathematicaly, but the point is, I don't think they record that as a data field you can just read out of the file.

I know that didn't help much, sorry... :think:

Edit: big_daddy is all over it, cool! I'm still pretty sure the functions provided are still not pulling the "BPM" from a data field in the file, but "listening" to the audio and calculating it with very cool maths.

Thanks big_daddy & PsaltyDS for the quick reply. bpmDetection.exe works great but I am unable to get the BPM from the gui. It doesnt show up in the AU3Info tool window. Big_daddy (sounds funny calling u by this name) is there anyway I could use the DLLCall function and get the BPMs in the backend instead of executing the program? Thanks in advance.

DjDeep00,

Ok.. I think this sounds like a cool idea but it looks like it will take a little work. The DLL bpmDetect requires the fmod sound library DLL. So, the first step will be to convert over the example of the DLL functions for fmod given in its documentation to the AutoIt format. After that is completed the rest should be as simple as calling a few DLL functions of bpmDetect and viola you have your numbers.

I'll post in the support forum and see if I can get some help porting Fmod Sound Library to AutoIt.

Thanks Simucal, I have no idea where to start by converting the code to Autoit. It would be awesome if you or someone else can get us started with this coding. Now that I know that it's possible to get BPMs, I just cant wait. :think:

HI,

maybe this

They are looking for the Beats per minute, not Bits per second.

That's a difference there between bits and beats...to clear things up, the GetExtProperty will get the bitrate, meaning the relation between song length and file size. However, beats per minute have absolutely nothing to do with this!!!

If we could port over the DLL calls to the fmod sound library we could get the beats per minute.

I might try and tackle this again.
