I want to be able to play my iPod music or parties and such, and play songs rhythmically related. My Googling has not turned up any software that can do this automatically (well it has, but for MACs, which I don’t have), but has turned up references to some kind of hardware solutions on which you tap your foot or fingers on a pad or button in time to music, and it will calculte BPM based on counting and averaging your taps over time.
Anyone here use any of these products? Ideally i would like some kind of pocket-sized portable so I can haul it around with my iPod, with a little memory so I can store results and put them into iTunes later. But portability would be the primary feature – if need be I can jot titles and BPMs on a piece of paper.
Plus what do they cost?
And an unrelated iTunes question – my Itunes Library and my iPod sort differently. The Library ignores words like “A” and “An” and “The” when sorting by titles and sorts by the 2nd word, but the iPod sort doesn’t ignore any first words. Any parameter I can change to make them do the same sort? I don’t care a whole lot which way it sorts, I just want the two to sort the same.
