How to Install Missing python module (macOS, aubio)


I’m on a Mac running “High Sierra” (10.13.2) and I get the following error on Picard start-up:

E: 09:50:45 Plugin 'bpm' : Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "picard/plugin.pyo", line 301, in load_plugin
  File "/Users/RayD/.config/MusicBrainz/Picard/plugins/", line 30, in <module>
ImportError: No module named aubio

I followed the directions for installing aubio from their website, but I still get the error in Picard on start-up.


I have the same problem and i use Windows 10.

My Picard freezes/hang up on a look up for files. And i can not go to the preferences to see that any plugin make problems.

I’ve cleaned the cache and i reinstalled picard. but it doesn’t work. i can not use picard because on every 2. or 3. file it will be hang up or freeze


Hi the BPM plugin was only tested and supported for Linux. I will have a look at possible instructions for OSX and Windows 10.
