Q: What is BPM?

The BPM (Beat Per Minute) is a unit to measure the speed (tempo) of music. It is used by VirtualDJ for track synchronization (beat matching) and timing of certain features and effects.

A slow music style such as reggae or groove music will have a lower BPM (about 100-110) than dance, club or techno music (130-140).
