"Riddled with malware"

July 10, 2013  |  By jagomino

 |  Version: MixMeister BPM Analyzer 1.0

Pros

None. Didn't install it after SweetPacks and some random ASPCA program hijacked my browser. Aborted installation when it tried to instal RealPlayer

Cons

The reviewers who said this has malware bundled with it were right.

Summary

Two attempts to change my default search and add a toolbar to my browser were blocked. I had to uninstall 6 crapware programs. The installation was for MixMeister but instead, when the downloader completed its corruption of my system I got RealPlayer instead, which I am familiar with but don't want or need. I cancelled the installation.

"By far the best program of its kind!"

July 08, 2013  |  By spiffmo

 |  Version: MixMeister BPM Analyzer 1.0

Pros

- Simple
- Does what it's supposed to do: detects BPM and adds to ID3 tag
- Scans and tags subfolders, unlike other BPM detectors
- Fast: 1-2 seconds per mp3 on a reasonably fast computer

Cons

- Haven't found any yet. Not sure if it does other file types, but it works great with mp3's.

Summary

- The previous two reviews about malware are way off base. Both users apparently got suckered into CNET's download method, which tries to trick you into installing crapware. During the install, MAKE SURE YOU CLICK "DECLINE" during the three "offers" pages. (The accept button is bright green, the "decline" button is gray, making you think you have to click accept. You don't.) This is NOT a Mixmeister issue - it's CNET trying to monetize.

- This program is far superior to BPM detector or the Abyssmedia BPM Analyzer in that it can scan subfolders, vastly improving tagging time.

- Analyzes to 0.01 bpm with great accuracy.

- Please note that songs with multiple tempos, ambient music, or songs with a strong bass beat might result in bad readings.

- Also be aware of double- and half- rates. If you're looking for a song with a bpm of 160, there are likely a lot of songs tagged at 80 that will be sufficient.

"Riddled with malware; SWEETPACKS killed my Firefox"

June 30, 2013  |  By tcarlyle

 |  Version: MixMeister BPM Analyzer 1.0

Pros

None - did not dare run the program after watching the included SWEETPACKS malware wreck my browser settings in the installation process.

Cons

I expected DL.COM to warn me about this kind of malware. Even after I uninstalled it, MixMeister's "SWEETPACKS" infection wiped out my FireFox customization and I'm still trying to fix it. It also resisted uninstalling.

Summary

I can't blame MixMeister for this - there are many malware programs out there. You did teach me to avoid anything from MixMeister (free or paid) and anything involving "SWEEPACKS" like the plague. I blame DOWNLOAD.COM - your review says nothing about this. I have trusted you since you started your business. DISAPPOINTING!

"Horrible program, full of programs that clog up cpu"

February 22, 2013  |  By J_Rockin

 |  Version: MixMeister BPM Analyzer 1.0

Pros

It worked on a few songs out of the 100 that I tried it on.

Cons

This program (and CNet) install Bing nad Whitesmoke and generally clog up your computer. It is horrible and it has taken hours of my life to get my computer back to running normal. I hate it when programs try and do this kind of stuff. Definitely not worth it for a program that does a horrible job of BPM detection.

Summary

Don't download this.

"Underrated program"

November 17, 2011  |  By dougr1988

 |  Version: MixMeister BPM Analyzer 1.0

Pros

Simple to use, free, the only BPM analyzer I found with any kind of accuracy.

Cons

Be aware of 1/2 beats and double beats.

Summary

Cross-checked results produced by this with other sources and found to be amazingly accurate.

Just be aware 1/2 beats in songs may double the BPM result and double beats may halve it.

No other programs came close.

"Disappointment"

November 15, 2011  |  By stoneturn

 |  Version: MixMeister BPM Analyzer 1.0

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

Doesn't work. Of the over 500 music files I needed the bpm for, it analyzed only 151. The files it wouldn't do are all MPEG4 audio files. It also wouldn't let me drag and drop files into it as it claims it will. When I try, it flashes a small white message window so fast that it's impossible to read what it says then goes back to the black screen of the software. I tried to get help on the mixmeister site but there isn't any available for this piece of software. There is a button on their site that says "community" so I thought I might be able to talk to someone there but the link didn't take me to a community.

Summary

Was impressed with the idea of this and loved that it was free, but it turned out to be of no use at all.

"Don't expect reliable results"

September 26, 2011  |  By rolfecms

 |  Version: MixMeister BPM Analyzer 1.0

Pros

Easy to use.

Cons

Used with a ballroom dance CD. Rumbas, the slowest ballroom dance, had higher BPMs than many of the other dance songs?! This software is completely worthless for my use.

Summary

What good is easy to use when the results don't approach acceptable?
