Back with another question, as described in the title. I have enabled everything I could, including writing non iTunes tags, analysing my songs a few times with overwrite enabled on every section that I want analysed. Some help on this would be really helpful and greatly appreciated

    Hey Mathew,

    please attach one of the files that Algoriddim does not display a key for.
    Which version of beaTunes did you use for analysis?
    I assume beaTunes does show a key, right?

    I have no idea how Algoriddim works—did you ask it to re-scan the file? Or is that not something it does?

    I'm currently using 5.0.1 and yes beaTunes shows the key. I haven't found a re-scan button and I don't think there is either. I had the same problem with VDJ 8 LE

    Here are my settings currently as well. I have tried both ID3 TKEY and Open Key but nothing still works. Applies to VDJ 8 LE too

    Hey Mathew,

    I checked the file. It contains the key Gm, i.e. G minor. For testing, I loaded the file into Traktor and it showed Gm as well.

    So as far as I can tell, the key is in there in a way that's readable to other applications.

    Please contact Algoriddim support and ask them how to re-read tags in your files.

    Hey Hendrik, I'm still waiting for Algoriddim to reply. In the meantime, I downloaded Serato and it doesn't show the keys for my songs either.

    I already did what was stated here in this article ( a few times but nothing still shows. Strangely tho, the keys do appear in Mp3tag and the keys are written in the initial key tag.

    Perhaps you need to ask Serato to read them. I'm no expert in this.

    Try Traktor, it shows the keys (at least for me).

    Strangely tho, the keys do appear in Mp3tag.

    Because they are in there...
