Question by : Hip Hop Sampling, How to find out the key of a sample?
Hello I am saving up to buy a MPC 2500 Sampler, and was wondering how producers go about figuring out what key a sample is in? for example say I want to sample a bassline or a sax sound how would I find out what key it is in so I can add other samples with it and make it sound all in the same key? Thanks.

I would play it on the piano and work it out from that.
