Hey,
i'm impressed by the one man show so far :)
I have one issue. I managed to get the analyzed key written in the file so serato itch can read and display it. But it shows A, C, Fm, Ebm etc, the keys from the Circle of Fifths...it is not showing the Open Key Notation 4d, 1d, 9m, 7m, etc which is written between brackets in beatunes itself. This is really annoying since, to be honest, i want to use the easier number system. Is there any possibility to solve this issue? Of course i can change it all by myself. But why not write the key in the opposite order: 7m (Ebm) then i guess itch would display 7m in the key field....
Thank you,
Greets

PS: if we get this thing fixed, i buy it! ;)

    Hi Johannes,

    I understand your wish, but will definitely not implement it. Here's why:

    I hope you understand the reasoning. IMHO, the correct place to ask for this feature is Serato.

    OK. man how fast you are.. ;)
    I helped me out with a mp3tag action, similar to the idea of der_zwerg a few posts ago..he wrote the keys into the comment as camelot key. now i think mine is even better since it translates the keys into the ok notation and writes it in the comment and, more important, replaces the initial tonal key it in the id3 key field for itch.
    everyone happy ;)
    thank you so far.

    Yeah of course. its really helpful. Just use this after you've done the analysis in beatunes and it's perfect.

    Cool. Thanks!

    For others: I suppose this action works with http://www.mp3tag.de/en/
