Keyfinder for Live
Ableton Live 11 has introduced the long-requested feature Comping. We are still waiting for pitch correction (Auto-Tune) and key detection (exp: Mixed in Key), until then, Max for Live to the rescue!
Setup is fast and easy. And it even renames the clip with the key after it finishes the analysis.
There are images of the Circle of Fifths and the Chamalot Wheel for easy reference to be used in Harmonic Mixing, sampling, and remixing.
Simply load the device to an Audio Track. Load audio clips, Launch the clips and hit Find Key.
