Automatic BPM Detection

The one feature I really miss in Onyx is automatic BPM detection. It would be great to be able to take a line signal, hook it up to the audio interface of the PC and have Onyx detect the tempo of the music in real time.
This might not be super important for concerts and live shows, but crucial for smaller night clubs that don’t have a light operator present for the whole night.


120 BPM averaged is your key ^^

yeah, I tried telling the DJs who play at our venue to play 120bpm so the lights are in sync, but the results were… let’s say, mixed (pun intended…).

I agree. Would love to see more inputs for BPM.

My Suggestion is:

  • Ableton Link (used by Ableton, Serato, Native Instruments, Virtual DJ)
  • Midi Clock

This might be easier to implement than audio analysis for BPM detection.

Now we can also add to this list direct send of Ableton link from Dj’s who use Denon dj equipment.
Ableton link is used also by Arkaos media servers and vj software.
And maybe also would be cool for adapting in onyx the Stage Linq protocol.

I was at PLS and it will come combined with mulitplie Audio Analysing Features etc. the next bigger update is amazing.

Is there a rough idea of when? This month? In the next couple months?

Couple of months at least I think. NX1 is the hot topic currently :slight_smile:
