Is there an option to show the Key similar to the Camelot wheel?

    Hi Joe,

    there is a way, but I'm afraid it's a bit cumbersome. You need to install the sample key renderer from https://www.beatunes.com/en/beatlet-keytextrenderer.html#groovykeyt... The format it uses/shows is identical to the one Camelot uses.

    Hope this helps,

    What folder do you put but I'm not seeing one in the Beatunes folder.

    This is the file I made. Is this correct?

    Please see here.

    If there is no folder named plugins, please simply create one and place the file in there. Then restart beaTunes. After the restart, you should see a new option for rendering key information in the general preferences.

    This is the file I made. Is this correct?

    Yes.

    Got it working! Thanks

    Is there any way to copy the danceability into the comment field?

    Great and no, there is built-in way to copy the danceability value. Sorry.

    Ok Thanks - Is that field written to the file somewhere that I can pull up
    in another program like Virtual DJ for example or does it only exist in the
    beatunes database?

    It’s written into the file, if you are using a folder-based library or are using an iTunes/Music-based library and have embedding turned on in the general preferences.

    A very generic third party tagger might show it. I have my doubts about VirtualDJ being able to show it.
