keyfinder−cli − Estimate the musical key of an audio file

**keyfinder-cli**
[−n key−notation] *audio−file*

The
**keyfinder−cli** command is used to estimate the
musical key of an audio file. Different output key notations
are supported. This tool is intended to be used by DJs
wishing to automate their music organization process.

By default the program will output the estimated key to STDOUT using the Standard Key Notation. When the audio file has no key (silence) nothing will be written to STDOUT and the program will exit with a 0 status.
