Default Re: Finding a Song's BPM

There's an iPhone app called "liveBPM Beat Detector" that shows a readout and graph of the tempo over the course of a song. it's obviously handy for seeing how steady you are, but also tells you the tempo. It works with any audio that has a rhythm, whether live playing or from a recording (just hold the mic end of the iPhone up to headphones or a speaker, and it will grab the tempo from that.) So if your rehearsing the song and it feels good, look at the display and you'll know the exact tempo.
