    http://www.gangmembers.net/audio/bpmcounter2.exe i posted this on lawrencehiphop.com a while ago, but i added a feature last night. now it counts milliseconds and rounds up if necessary so that you don't get screwed out of a beat you may have almost hit anyway. and it makes the 30 second option more accurate too. use the enter key to tap the beats, it's easier than clicking. and start it in time with the beat too.

    http://www.gangmembers.net/audio/bpmcounter25.exe v2.5 basically all i changed is that now, if you don't want it to round for you, it still calculates the space between your last beat in milliseconds (times 2 if you're doing 30 seconds), divides it by the millisecond average between beats, so you can see what the last fraction of a beat would have been. i don't know if this makes sense until you try it. and i unchecked rounding as the default, since i think it provides more information. if i ever get around to a version 3, i want to make it so you can save song titles and bpms and keep your own database of your songs. but that is sort of tedious to program and it might be a while. also, if you don't have it, here's a bpm-to-rpm converter... it basically tells you how much to adjust your pitch to change the bpm: http://www.gangmembers.net/audio/bpmtorpm.exe if i was into electronics, i'd turn that one into a little light-up calculator thing to stick on my mixer. p.s. if you haven't started doing it already, here's a tip: start hitting enter on the 4th beat, not the first... that way it's easier to make sure you're still on beat, because your number of beats will always be divisible by 4 on the fourth beat. it doesn't start actually counting until the first beat after you hit start.
