beaTunes creates compelling playlists just for you

Spend any time with Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify, or any other music app and you’ll find that they usually have one glaring problem: the suggested playlists are often full of songs you really don’t want. beaTunes ($19.99) is different, using a sophisticated algorithm and your ripped or purchased music to analyze your likes and create truly personal playlists.

beaTunes is an advanced music application for Windows and macOS that lets you analyze, inspect, and play songs—and create compelling playlists. This app doesn’t just play music, it also listens. It employs sophisticated algorithms to analyze your music for metadata like tempo (BPM), key, color, segments, similarities, loudness, and acoustical fingerprints. It lets you know, what’s in all those files! Analysis is a stable foundation for great sounding playlists as well as tag lookup and acoustical duplicate detection. Let beaTunes’ science do some work for you! 

  • Automatically determine BPM (beats per minute)

  • Automatically determine the musical key your songs are in

  • Sort existing playlists so that matching songs succeed each other

  • Create matchlists (i.e., playlists based on one or more sample songs)

  • Browse songs from your music collection that match the currently selected song

beaTunes runs on both Mac and Windows, so let your Windows-using friends know about this special pricing.
