But the new version does have the edit_bpm window which allows you to adjust the BPM value and also phase. I use this alot for trip hop which is too syncopated to guess values correctly on many counts.
Theres something in the PDF which also explains about tag writing. Though I cant remember where or when i saw it.

The problem with manually adjusting all of my music in the new VDJ, would be extreamly time comsumming. Their should be a way just to disable it upon load and only manual scan for bpm when I want it to.
Is that a little clearer?
I want it to read my ID tags, I don;t want it to manually scan the song I put in. If it is a song that i never had played before, it tries to re-do the BPM and in the middle of the mix, BOOM it messes it up because it thinks 80 bpm is 130!
When I Rip my music, I tag it with the proper BPM. No extra scanning needed from the VDJ software. How do i disable the bpm scanning and just have it read my tags?

(as Dev staff stated sometime) There is a good reason why vdj scan and overwrite the bpm value saved in tags.
It needs to buld its own rhythmic structure of each file in the database (beatgrid etc.) so that all beat functions such as loops, sync/beatlock depend on.
It is not possible to use separate sources eg. external bpm from tags, and vdj engine for loops etc.
This will simply don't work.
Anyway some thinks will change for good in the future..
and yes... i can't say much for now -)

afaik, vdj doesnt overwrite the id3 tags, it uses the tags its written in its own library. your tag is still there, but you need to look in the xml file in the vdj installation. thats where the usable information is...
