    Default Accuracy of free software called Keyfinder

    Hello.

    Do any of you use Keyfinder?

    How accurate do you find it?

    I don't have another program to compare the key results with that's why I'm asking.

    The DJTT Blog has an article on the different Key finding software somewhere. I also think Endo at Dubspot did one recently too.
    I would google it for you, but I'm lazy.

    LOL. I found this, but maybe there's a 2013 edition?

    In the article are compared three progams, the most accurate is 42% - really bad isn't it?

    Your ear and a keyboard are usually the best option for accuracy. Using a key finder software will give you a starting point at least. Sometimes the misread key is a related key like C major and A minor.

    I can't remember where I saw the Dubspot comparison. Here it is http://blog.dubspot.com/endo-harmoni...tion-analysis/

    keying software generally favors minor keys to avoid the issue of relative majors and minors because 99.9% of good dance music is in minor

    Don't compare one program's results to another, as people said you can only compare with your ear and keyboard (if you have a perfect pitch) . Stick with one software and you'll be fine.
    KeyFinder is fast, gets decent results, uses CamelotKeys (01A, 02A,..etc ) when you input them as custom keys and more importanty - it's free unlike MiK and others

    I checked it out but don't know which entries to put in each custom key box?
