    Default Key Analyze/Scanning Software

    Are there any good programs out there for Mac OS X or Windows XP to scan the keys of tracks? I've been doing it by ear for too long. Platform isn't important, but OS X needs to be able to read the tags in the end (I DJ w/Traktor on OSX).

    Thanks,
    -Dj Lucid

    i like Mix Meister. You can load a directory into the MM database and it will read every tracks' key and write it into the id3 tag for you. So, traktor will display it without any real effort on your part. It will also print out a handy cheat sheet. This is really nice for cataloging your wax.

    bento recently posted a link to a free program called rapid evolution that seems pretty nice, as well. Here's the link again:

    also, search "harmonic mixing" in this forum

    I posted about this in another thread... i personally don't trust these programs the find the key, in my belief they are a aid in finding the music key and not a one stop shop so user beware about false positives !

    you really just need to trust your ear when it comes down to it. there has only been 1 or 2 times when MIK was wrong. from what i could tell.

    Default Traktor's Key

    What I want to know is why Traktor is still showing us a meaningless percentage value instead of the key itself? Even with Mixed In Key I still get very confused about how that translates to that stupid value Traktor shows you.

    1.5% = 1 semitone remember that and you are most of the way there

    What you say would be nice though
