    so i've been trying to be more harmonic and plan a bit more ahead with my mixing by looking up the key of a song then trying to fit it in.

    what is the effect of altering the pitch on the key?
    if you raised a song by say 2bpm would that increase the key by half a semitone(eg)??

    i understand the best way to go is to play it by ear but it would help alot if someone could clear this up for me, cheers
    apologies if i'm not making much sense

    interesting point actually, never really considered that. bear in mind if it does alter it by enough to make a difference to the key it is in then i imagine the songs would have to fairly different in tempo to start with. couldn't say for sure though
