Realtime key, chord and tempo detection
HoRNet SongKey MK3 is the all new third version of our key recognition tool, but it doesn’t do simple key recognition, it’s also capable of detect the chord being played and the song tempo. We thought it was a good idea to also add MIDI input (to be able to detect chords and key of midi tracks) and MIDI output for the recognised chords so you can record them and edit the track for your own needs.
At the core of SongKey we find the “chromagram” (a level representation of the intensity of each note playing in the song) but we spent a lot of time creating a more reliable and cleaner chromagram than the one of the previous version.
The data extracted from the audio is used to feed an artificial intelligence unit that is used to detect each chord, and SongKey MK3’s chord detection extends to sevenths, fifths and suspended chords.
The new key detection engine builds on the chromagram and expands it with another artificial intelligence unit based around a statistical chord progression model that analysing the chord sequence is able to understand the key of the song, this has the great advantage that the key recognition is always realtime so you can change song without the need to reset the plugin, or if the song changes key in some part of it, the plugin will simply be able to detect the new chord sequence and follow the key change.
The all new GUI is completely vector drawn and resizable, so it’ll look good on any screen and can be made smaller or bigger as needed.
SongKey is very useful in those situation in which you don’t have an instrument at hand to find out the key of a song you are working on or if you are a DJ and want to make a mash up but you don’t know in which key a song is written. The chord detection feature gives you insights on the chord progression of the song so that you can better design your bass lines and pads.
We decided to not provide a demo for SongKey MK3 because we don’t want to to cripple our product too much and limiting the capability of this plugin for a demo would mean to provide a bad testing experience.
For this reason we offer an instantaneous full refund within 15 days of your purchase if you buy SongKey MK3 and you don’t like it
