to iTunes and Serato? My only thought is to move the key info from
that field to another field. Currently it does not show in iTunes key
field nor does Serato have a key field. If you have any info it would

    iTunes does not feature a key column, so the only thing you can do is to copy the key value to another field, like the comment or the grouping field. There are a couple of articled in the news section on how to do that:


    Regarding Serato... in the beaTunes General Prefs is a checkbox that lets you embed non-iTunes fields into audio files. Check that box and analyze some files. Rescan those files with Serato and it should read the key.

    Hope this helps!
