Why Don't All Songs Have Chord And Melody Metrics?

I’ve noticed that not all songs have chord and melody metrics in the Theorytab Database. Are they only created with every update that you release? Or do they have to get a certain amount of views?

I was also wondering how quickly the metrics update if you edit a Theorytab and change its harmony/melody.

Hey @jackscores01

Songs metrics are processed weekly, so they won’t show up immediately for new analyses. Since the metrics represent percentiles, all of the existing theorytabs have their metrics updated in response to a new batch of analyses. At some point we may adjust the frequency of this update or come up with a way to estimate these metrics immediately, but for now this is the way that it works.
