    Best Beatcounter App for PC - ACID\'s BPM Counter is lying!

    greez,

    i just recognized that S.F. ACID´s beatcounter function doesnt work at all! when u compare the indicated bpm with the bpm u get from an outboard beatcounter (e.g. integrated in most DJ mixing desks) it s just miles away from the real bpm that the outboard beatcounter reveals [img]images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    now i urgently need an app for PC that does better than ACID. please tell me which app u think is best for beatcounting functions (i wanna pass loops through it and also entire nonlooped music trax).

    has \"Ableton\" a good beatcounting function? or \"Nuendo\"? \"Recycle\" doesnt have one i already checked...

    thx a lot for ur help,
    W.K:

    can ableton handle also non 4/4 beats very exactly. i remarked ACID is not made for any non 4/4 beats... so thats where my prob is at...

    warriorking,
    Acid does NOT lie, but BPM measurement depends on several facts that can change between a software and another (I should say from a company to another).
    hardware and software does not manage the same way BPM, it seems.
    Here it has been discussed already (recently):
