TapTempo

A command line tap tempo. Hit enter key with style and you'll get the corresponding number of beats per minute (BPM).

This tool is very useful to quickly find the tempo of a song without launching a big digital workstation like Ardour or LMMS.

Demo

Just type "taptempo" in a terminal and hit the enter key while your hearing a song to print the tempo:

> taptempo
Hit enter key for each beat (q to quit).

[Hit enter key one more time to start bpm computation...]
Tempo: 143 bpm	
Tempo: 145 bpm	
Tempo: 143 bpm	
Tempo: 143 bpm	
Tempo: 144 bpm	
Tempo: 145 bpm	
Tempo: 146 bpm	q
Bye Bye!
