So I'm switching back to Logic as I really like the latest update, but one thing I really miss from Live is the ability to easily figure out what key a percussion instrument is in.

Do you guys know any plugin eqs that have this ability as well?

Yeah, Waves for sure.

How do you do this in Live though?

(Edit: My post said "Wavestation" before. Auto correct, sorry..)

Spectrum Analyzer is what I used in Live. Are there any other spectrum analyzers out there that can do this? I guess would have been a better question than EQs... i'll check out the waves one too thanks.

When you expand EQ Eight (only Live 9) and move your pointer around it's analyzer you can see it in the bottom left corner

There is a tuner in logics plugins you might that. I haven't tried using it on drums though so it may not be effective. There was another free plug which is a spectrum analyzer. I think it was from blue cat audio iirc.

Create a send with spectrum analyzer on it, mute the channel. When you want to figure out what key a hit is in, just send the signal to the spectrum and hover over the fundamental peak, then look at what note it is.

DMG Equilibrium is exactly what I was looking for. Beautiful sound and unbelievably sharp interface. Thanks for the suggestion, I like it a lot more than waves h-eq.

I use the tuner plugin that comes with Logic. It doesn't always work with short percussive hits. So, I get creative and crank up the verb/delay or whatever to to get that thing to respond for a split second. Sometimes I will drop it into the EXS and fiddle around with envelopes. It is very accurate when I test it with keyed samples.

I am also going to look into the DMG Eq as the method I just described can at times be laborious and painful, but it is free. Tuned percussion, it just sounds right. I can't not do it now that I've started.

I tried the tuner but it just wouldn't work properly for me. I need to be able to be 100% positive that the key is correct, and the tuner just wasn't cutting it for me. If it works for ya then that's great, it just wasn't working for me. DMG Equilibrium is fantastic though.

So with the DMG Equilibrium or Waves H-eq, the idea is that the analyzer will reveal the fundamental frequency which will correspond with a note on the underlying keyboard?
