The way you calculate the BPM (beats Per minute) of a song in a DJ setup is to play the song in your headphone cue for for fifteen seconds and count the number of quarter notes (beats). Then multiply that number by 4. Many DJ's write down the BPM of the songs they play before they play them in a performance.
