How do you find the key of a song, preferably drum and bass.
depends on the notes that are being played in the song...the main note or tonic is the name of the key.
There is plenty of programs on the net that will do this for you, have a search on Google
Chemical Records has the key for most songs on it and any they dont you can buy Mixed in Key software for.
Somthing "like" this..
Its under the flowerpot by the front door.
This is nice!
bit broke for it tho but book marked.
It says high contrast uses it
andy c uses it too, and labels his records acordingly with coloured lines.

I learnt guitar when i was younger and its helped me out so much with music in general, i recommend you learn an instrument while your still young man,
ps. girls also will love it when you get older !
^^ Yup, being the the drummer in a band got me laid many a times
^^ Still being a DJ who runs a successful night is starting to pay off! I'm sure Whitey will back me up on that one!
anyone know how to set the root key in ableton live?
yeah learning an instrument definately helps..
another way to do it on the cheap would be to download a virtual midi keyboard (Bome's midi keyboard is good) then just piss about with the keys until you find the root note (generally the note which will sound good with all the other notes in the song)
1.Learn music theory
2.Listen to tunes
Just steps 1 and 2
Transient what do you class as Musical Theory? Just curious cos i've been into music my whole life, played instruments since i was 5 and know how to write tunes etc. basically i'm guna get into production soon and am not sure if its necessary to go to college to do music production if its not guna be of any benfit? Sorta a life decision as i'll have to completely change career path, might make a thread lol.
...hanging out of your cars ignition and your door is locked
Many colleges offer a Music theory line of class ranging from say 1-4 or whatever. I belive it just teaches you the backbone on how music is made and why certain things sound good together, correct me if im wrong. Im going to be attended some theory classes as well for production I also think piano would be a good instrument to know sense you'll be using a midi controller ALOT
