Does anybody else feel a tap tempo function on the upload page would be useful? I don’t upload from the same computer I create songs from and rarely do I embed tempo information into the ID3 mp3 file. Regardless, I found a decent metronome online that seems to function properly if anybody finds it useful for tapping tempo!http://www.seventhstring.com/metronome/metronome.html
Oh sweet! I always forget what tempo my tracks are when uploading and had to fire up kontakt to tap tempo. Thanks Joe. And yeah I agree a little tap tempo widget on the upload page would be great
good idea! will be useful!
Here’s the one I’ve been using for years:http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/Audio/taptempo/Freeware.htm

Good resources, thanks for sharing! Not sure we need to add them to the upload page however – either make a note of the BPM in your DAW , or set your preferences so the DAW bounces your .mp3 with the BPM inside the ID3 tags. The BPM will then be visible when you preview your mp3.
I make a point to upload my AJ preview tracks to my SoundCloud page as well, and they have a “Tap Tempo” feature in their player, so if I forget to note the BPM I just pop over and use that. Useful tool and extra marketing!
