i was soooo hoping that this would be there when i upgraded to v4... :(

i already use mp3tag to move them into something that MM can see, but that's an extra step i'd like to ditch if possible.

Add me to the list of people who want/need this tag to be native. Seriously if BPM is there why not initial key?

I would also like to have Key and Keycode as field options. The key of a song is often just as important as BPM or Mood.

Also, if a user's files have this information in them from another program (Mixed in Key, Rapid Evolution 2 or 3, Mixmeister, Virtual DJ, etc.), why not take advantage of it? There are probably AutoDJ plugins that could use this info to improve the overall flow of a generated playlist.

Is this feature seriously still not in the program? I bought media monkey several years ago and when version 4 came out, it didn't support this field. I figured I wouldn't upgrade until it did since version 3 pretty much has everything I want except that. I thought that a couple of years later, surely it would be supported by now since it's becoming more and more common for people to use that tag (especially with the increase in popularity of mixed in key etc).

Is this feature really not added yet or have I just missed where it's mentioned?

It has not been added at the point.

Yet another bump. I was hoping to use Mediamonkey as an alternative to making crates in Serato. But without the ability to sort by Initial Key it's completely useless for me.

Does anybody know of a program that is essentially an MP3 & MP4 search engine for your desktop? It should search my entire hard drive for music (except the folders I exclude) and be able to search for and sort by Key and BPM.
