Library and tool for dealing with beats per second detection in Go
This is a direct port of Mark Hills bpm-tools.
For that reason, it is also under the same licence as that utility, ( GPLv2 ).
You can use this version as a libary too, In testing you may find it produces slightly different results than bpm-tools. This is because both tools use a random float on mid point selection, Ideally it would use a static one, but I won't replicate drand exactly to just get 1:1 matching with the offical tools.
You need to feed the command line utility PCM 32 bit little edian floats (mono), there are two easy ways to do this:
sox "$FILE" -r 44100 -e float -c 1 -t raw - | ./cmd /dev/stdin
ffmpeg -v quiet -i 1479012090.ts -f f32le -ac 1 -c:a pcm_f32le -ar 44100 pipe:1 | ./cmd /dev/stdin
You can also ask for a "snapshot" per second of the BPM calculated, using progressive mode:
$ ffmpeg -v quiet -i 1479012090.ts -f f32le -ac 1 -c:a pcm_f32le -ar 44100 pipe:1 | ./cmd -progressive=true /dev/stdin 179.020979 193.086109 191.044776
The first value is the BPM for the first 10 seconds, the 2nd for 10-20 seconds, 3rd is the 20-30th (and more until you stop giving it data)
