store and display key in musical format and openkey format

sometimes we think in musical terms, sometimes in openkey terms.

as there are two tags (key and key text) it would be nice if one would be used to store openkey and the other one the musical version of the key.

    already possible!

    "displayed in traktor" is the Key column, and then you can fill the Key Text column yourself (and also put more stuff in there, like if something is a few cents off, or if the key changes over the course of the track) and save that to the file.

    hey wayfinder,

    thanks for your reply.

    i did not know that the key text was. i assumed traktor was fill it in sometimes, and it seems it does, but not sure when and for sure, not always. maybe when the track is first analysed. could not figure it out.

    Maybe a simpler approach would:

    • being able to assign a shortcut (in controller manager_ to switch between openkey and musical display would be nice.
    • and/or the option two display openkey+musical in one field in the browser and deck view.

    key text is populated from the ID3 field INITIALKEY, if there's something there.
