This function gets the beats per minute of a specific sound element.

[[|link=|]] Warning: This function is expensive to call and will freeze the client about 1-3 seconds. Also, trying to get the BPM from a sound directly after its creation will make the sound start only after the client freeze. You can use a setTimer to call this function after song creation so it can play normally.
