I am a bit confused. I always use a reference track, in order to create my chord progression, in this case it was:
I created the Chord Progression and then I used my own sounds of course, then I added a bassline and melody, with the help of captain plugins which allow me to create basslines and melodies always In Key.
According to Mixed In Key, the key of the reference track is 1A. (A-flat minor), according to Mixed in Key, the key of my track is 2 A(E-flat minor). Why the difference if I used the same chord progression?
After finishing the track I searched for vocals labeled as Aminor on my collection.
However it looks like the vocal is not in key.
Here is the track without vocal: https://soundcloud.com/valenciadjm/deep-in-london/s-lG47y
Here is the track with vocal: https://soundcloud.com/valenciadjm/you-will-always-be-my-inspiration/s-O1rN3
My question is easy, any tips on workflow when working with vocals to be 100% sure the vocal is in KEY with the instrumental? and 2nd. How much would I need to traspose the vocal up or down, to make it in key?
I appreciate your input here, this field is new for me.
