Creating good playlists is hard. But help is on the way! beaTunes offers you Matchlists.

Matchlists are a hybrid of iTunes-like smart playlists and Genius. Instead of following hard rules, matchlists are created with a couple of seed songs and a set of soft rules.

Here's how it works

You are done. Enjoy your new matchlist!

Matchlists aren't perfect - but usually a lot better than shuffle or some obscure 'smart' playlists. And if you don't like the outcome right away, you can easily custom tune the mechanism for creating better versions. In the application preferences you can assign more or less weight to the rules that detect a similar BPM, a similar color, or other attributes of your songs.

And if you don't feel like tuning rules, just select a song from the main table and ask beaTunes to play similar songs.

So - how are you going to create your next playlist? Get the free trial version and see for yourself how simple it can be.


beaTunes has a lot more useful features to detect the key of your songs, adjust loudness via ReplayGain, keep your library in shape, browse your songs in new ways, analyze your music, and help you to create interesting playlists.
