.TH BPM "1"

.SH NAME
bpm-tools \- calculate the tempo of music files

.SH SYNOPSIS
.B bpm-tag
[\fIoptions\fR] \fIfile\fR

.B bpm-graph
\fIfile\fR

[\fIoptions\fR] < \fIfile.raw\fR

.SH DESCRIPTION

The
.B bpm-tools
commands are used to automatically calculate the tempo (in
beats-per-minute) of music, optionally displaying an analysis
and adding it to file 'tags'. The data from these tags can be
especially useful for navigating a music library in DJ software
such as
.B xwax(1).

The
.B bpm
command implements the algorithm on raw data, but
the most commonly used command is
.B bpm-tag.

.SH OPTIONS

Options are described by the commands themselves. Use one of the
following for more information:
.sp
.RS
bpm-tag -h

bpm-graph -h

bpm -h
.RE
