If you are referring to the BPM of acapellas available on this website then I believe the BPM data will become ‘visable’ after you have reached 50 posts in the Acapellas4U forum.December 16, 2007 at 1:44 pm #639561
Ok… Thx 4 infoDecember 16, 2007 at 6:22 pm #639569
oh cool thanks then… first post… 49 to go…December 16, 2007 at 6:23 pm #639570
ok, id better slow down now i don;t want to get banned :ODecember 17, 2007 at 12:20 am #639586
lol would probs be a good ideaDecember 17, 2007 at 8:36 am #639595
lol, i’ve been wondering about the same thing, i always put a simple beat on fruity loops, put the auto detect, then start looping it until it matches, isn’t there a way to know the BPM?
and i’m not talking about only acapellas from here…December 19, 2007 at 5:01 am #639732
I’ve used Acid Pro beatwizard to manually find the right bpm of the acapella.
It works a treat for those with a trained ear.December 19, 2007 at 7:24 pm #639773
50 posts… sighDecember 20, 2007 at 9:35 am #639838

At fifty posts you get access to the preview and bpm features.January 2, 2008 at 2:42 am #640635
i dont know about those 50 posts but if you have the original track and/or instrumental you can use those. i personally get most of my acapellas along with promos.
I beatmap all on acid starting with the instrumental.
once i get to the acapella i already know the bpm so i just beatmap to that bpm..January 3, 2008 at 1:08 pm #640727
I put it in VirtualDJ and then tap the logical rhytm with the spacebar.
Or you do it old school style by pushing "=" on your calculator one minute long after tipping "1+1" 😉January 3, 2008 at 2:20 pm #640731

Like the calculater idea.January 4, 2008 at 12:01 am #640757
i know rightJanuary 6, 2008 at 6:49 pm #640911
The magic of Acid Pro worked a treat for me. ThanksJanuary 18, 2008 at 7:48 am #641496
Simple!…..Find the original track drop it in [url url=http://www.mixmeister.com/download_freestuff.html:2e9lifzo]Mixmiester’s free BPM analyzer[/url:2e9lifzo]. I can usually do it by ear but when all else fails the original track, vocal + beat, will show you tha light brother!January 18, 2008 at 12:15 pm #641507
I’ve often found the suggested bpm’s to be erroneous, as is suggested in the disclaimer (you’ll also often find that the 2 different acapellas of the same song with have different bpm’s listed, even though they’re actually the same tempo). So i just use a digital metronome with a tap tempo. I can get the bpm within seconds this way without hassle.
Old skool, but effective nonetheless.January 18, 2008 at 12:21 pm #641508
I have tried most of the above but the only why I seem to get it right is to put the acapella on a cd and the beat mix it in to my DAW from CD Player.January 19, 2008 at 2:43 pm #641557

Ditto. That’s rules too much. Great question Fabes.January 19, 2008 at 3:19 pm #641558

I use the same method,it usually worksJanuary 19, 2008 at 6:35 pm #641566
i use a file not sure of the name found online that only finds the bpmJanuary 20, 2008 at 1:23 am #641573
i didn’t even know of the 50 post thing. i suppose i’m on my way.January 22, 2008 at 4:10 am #641694
thats actually really awesomeJanuary 23, 2008 at 4:51 am #641764
People – are you remixing tracks when you’ve never heard the original!? Shame on you – Listen to the original song & where words fall on the beat – that tells you where to place the vocals on your beat. If you’re still having trouble then buy the original song for like 99 cents or download it off a P2P program & drop it in Mixmeister (link is above, its free). Its really not that complicated + tapping requires a very steady hand & will always produce some error in speed.
If you’re talking about live DJing then you need a good ear – obviously. Still, the original track would tell you how to match the vocal – use your beatmatching skills & change the speed. Thats the only way as your automatic bpm finder will not do the trick unless there is a beat for it to focus on.January 23, 2008 at 9:27 am #641817
I almost forgot – There’s a tutorial [url url=http://www.acapellas4u.co.uk/topic13118.html:adfje25y]HERE[/url:adfje25y] that I wrote a few years back for this site when I was a mod.January 23, 2008 at 11:40 pm #641847
this site is quite good to get the average bpm then all you need to do is tweet it a bit after http://web.forret.com/tools/bpm_count.aspJanuary 25, 2008 at 6:50 pm #641994

Sometimes it doesn’t work with acapellas which haven’t been seperated. If there is any background noise or beats it can throw the calculation off.January 25, 2008 at 8:21 pm #642007
ive had that problem beofre with mixmaster think the pella i had had already been messed about with
