comment Identifying meter on double bass drum
There is another software, Sonic Visualiser, which is also free and open source, which can do what I've done above in audacity, and can also do a whole lot more analysis stuff. I haven't used it much yet though, so I can't give a walk-through yet.

comment Trumpet low C♯ and D
Ah yeah, that makes sense, since the valves just add to the length, instead of multiplying it..

comment Why do minor keys sound “sad”?
In particular, why is D minor the saddest of all keys? I weep instantly when I hear it, and I don't know why.

comment How long should each chord in a chord progression be played?
There are a couple of close votes on this, because as it's phrased, answers have to be mostly opinion-based. If you re-phrased it along the lines of "How long are chords usually played, and how does the speed of change affect the mood of the music", or something like that, then answers could be a little more objective.

comment How long should each chord in a chord progression be played?
That depends on the style of music. Drum and bass at 180bpm might have chords playing for 8 bars, so 7-8 seconds. I think you're probably better off thinking about how long a chord plays in terms of time, rather than beat/bars. Also, a more laid back song will tend to play chords for longer.

Also, this question would probably be more suited to video.stackexchange.com although shopping questions aren't welcome there either, so it would have to be re-phrased.

comment What's the point of keys other than C and Am?
That's reducio ad absurdum. Unless you have a well developed absolute pitch, which most Westerners don't have (nor any other culture without a tonal language), then it's almost impossible to tell the difference between C major and C# major, unless they are played back-to-back. Moving keys up by one semitone is totally different to moving it 10 octaves (which is about the full range of human hearing).

comment Are there any MIDI extensions that allow quarter tones?
Wheat, yeah, my terminology is wrong. I meant anything that can be done with MIDI beyond the standard set of 127 MIDI notes. JCpedroza's answer covers it now.
