Key and Scale Detection
Auto-Key makes it quick and easy to find the key and scale of your music. Just place it on an instrument track
or master bus and begin playback.
Auto-Key will analyze the audio in real time and display the key and scale after a few seconds of playback
analysis. You can also upload an audio file to analyze an entire song in seconds.
In addition to key and scale, Auto-Key also tells you the reference frequency of your music. Most modern
music is tuned so that A is equal to 440 Hz, but this is not always the case. If your music or samples are tuned
to a different reference frequency, Auto-Key will show you what it is, so you can make the necessary
adjustments when applying pitch correction or selecting samples.
