These days many of us let Apple Music, Spotify and other streaming services build our playlists for us. But lots of people also maintain music libraries of their own, so what can we do with all those tracks and albums?

beaTunes is a sophisticated music app for macOS (and Windows!) that analyzes and arranges songs to create compelling playlists. This app doesn’t just play music, though. It listens, so it can analyze metadata like tempo, key, structure, volume and other acoustical fingerprints. It compares songs’ similarities, the creates playlists that move through tracks in ways that please the ear and set the right mood.

With beaTunes, you can sort existing playlists so matching songs follow one another, browse for matching songs, and more. Even without creating a playlist, you can get insights into the music in your collection, whether to make your own playlists or just learn more about what you listen to.

Buy now: Get the beaTunes music app for Windows and Mac for $19.99. That’s 42% off the usual price.
