1. cut the song into portions

3. then have mixmeisters BPM analyzer analyze the portions of the song
I tried this before, and it only works if you cut each portion accurately. If you say cut a portion of the song halfway within a beat, Mixmeister will calculate the bpm wrong.

I think we need sticky optimization, so sticked this thread and added links for old stickies.

Of course not half way within a beat, it would have to be on a fourth. Simple music knowledge is required for stepping (at least accurately).

P.s. I made a revision of this post without the Thirdstyle references and seemingly bad organization with long explanations. I'll probably send it to Patashu and see if he edits the post with some of it.

I should probably add (and might bug patashu to actually add it to the guide) that my entire contribution to this guide is optional. If you actually give a damn about having "the best sound for the most accurate files" or whatever you use to justify $400 headphones, you probably already know what you need to. If you don't, you probably don't even need to read the section. Hell, moches steps with apple earbuds, and he makes great files.

So yeah, G is entirely optional.

oni-paranoia hasn't gotten back to me on the revised version, so I went ahead and updated the OP with some changes I've been making over at thirdstyle in response to newbies having trouble setting up, so it should be more streamlined now (hopefully!)

Do you mean for BPM stuff? or just stepping in general? I thought stepmania worked on Ma, but....

http://www.mixmeister.com/bpmanalyzer/bpmanalyzer.asp

There is a mac version for this though.

for songs with static BPM that works, if it's dynamic, use a BPM tapper.
maybe try grabbing Winebottler and using DDReam

Yeah, also, an old technique i think you'd just fill the first measure with 64ths and then alter the bpm until they were on time and then multiply it accordingly.

Obsolete though lmao. If you play Osu! there is a built in BPM tapper or just cut out all the shit and get ddream like rog said. It's p sick once you learn it.

This guide is fantastic. It's my first time seeing it. I'll sure keep it as a reference if I ever get questions about how to step songs for FFR.

My whole sig is linked to Patashu guides, now.
