Thanks for confirming that you do get the same result as myself and others.
Engine Prime is alright with straight 4/4 house/techno tracks, even if you don’t parse your tracks through MIK and Serato like you do it will get the BPM.
The issue is with other genre of music that is not house ie Hip Hop, R & B, Reggae, Afrobeats, Soca, Dancehall. It manages to get some right but fails with other.
Like i mentioned earlier i have two copies of 50 cent - In Da Club and it gives me the right value for one and wrong bpm value for the other.
My library is 63k songs deep, no way will i manually peruse each track to see if the BPM is correct. If i was just acquiring music and building my collection sure i may be able to keep an eye on individual tracks as i add them to the library, even that will be a slow painful process in this era of downloading many tracks per week.
Suffice to say…my Rider is unchanged
Options for the good guys at Denon
If new track contains BPM value in the ID Tag, Engine Prime should import it as such and should only analyse for location of downbeat. This should apply for both the players and the EP software.
To continue to Improve BPM algorithm on players and software
Allow a easier way to correct wrong BPM on both players and software. Not tap!
For the sake of science i will test the old Engine 1.5 to see how that performs
And we have a winner…1.5.2 gets the BPM spot on.
