    Default Mixed in key worth it?

    Purchased mixed in key. Analyzed 3000 tracks took 36hours. Well finally decided to test the harmonic tagging I based a 1hour set purely on harmonic progression based on how mixed in key analyzed it.
    Lets see if I can remember how to embed soundcloud links.

    I think it did quite well on it. I found some of the more melodic tracks it did far better one. You will notice some tracks a 2 to 3min mix sounds way more harmonically sound then otherS. I believe I started at 2A and went up to 8 or 9 then back down

    Most DJ software has key analysis built in, and there are decent free apps out there too. So I'd have to say, not worth it.

    I find it worth it. It's part of my routine when I buy music and 99% of the time, it's accurate.

    I was going to purchase MIK, but after Traktor included it in their software, I didn't think it was worth it.

    Update: N/M. just saw you used Serato.

    I have traktor and serato I don't use traktor much though enjoy the simplicity of serato I don't sync beatgrid quant snap anything I basically use it how I used to mix vinyl only difference is har wave forms bpm display and now key which is meh I have yet to listen to the set I posted usually I throw my sets on my phone and listen when doing yard work or washing vehicles or working late and then tear apart every eq turn and slight mistake.

    I did not know the newest iterations of traktor had key detection built in. Maybe ill update since fairly certain I am still using first release after remix decks were added.

    Really should use it more I have all my midi devices mapped into a super map but the remix decks pissed me off terribly bad so haven't used for a while. Likely been 8monthd since I did a set in traktor

    Doesn't it require an internet connection too? Traktor analyzes keys fairly fast and it can be combined with standard gridding/waveform analysis.
