    Key Detection

    wycks Community Member

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to figure out what the key of a piano loop is.  A while back, I was able to do this with Audition 3 but can't remember how I did it.  I'm using Audition CS6 now, so any help on finding out what the key of a piano loop (or violin/choir/guitar/bassline/etc loops too)

       

      Thanks,
      Mike

          It was probably the Frequency Analysis window. But in CS6 the Manual Pitch Correction effect might also help you.

            Thanks for the response.

             

            I can't seem to find something in the manual pitch correction effect that will tell me what key the sound loop is in.  Is there a step by step process you could give me?  Or is there some other program that can detect the key of a loop and if there is could you tell me how to do it?

             

            Thanks,

            Mike

              Ok so now I see the notes on the right side of the of the clip when I open manual pitch correction.  I'm trying to detect the key of a piano loop, so how do i interpret what i'm seeing with the manual pitch correction to figure out what the key of the loop is?
