Key normalization

A few ideas:

  • Use music theory to minimize accidentals (as proposed here)
    • This seems to work about 90% of the time
    • That's what this site does and this guy explains
  • Use music theory to maximize non-accidentals
  • Use music theory to maximize non-accidentals weighted by their prominence in the key (e.g., I weighted highest, IV and V weighted next-highest)
    • Learn weights from data
  • Use music theory to minimize accidentals weighted by their prominence in the key (e.g., bVII weighted lowest, bVI weighted higher)
    • Learn weights from data
  • Use music theory to minimize accidentals to get candidates and then use music theory to choose intelligently from candidates
  • Use music theory to maximize non-accidentals to get candidates and then use music theory to choose intelligently from candidates
  • Use neural network
  • Use HMM

Interesting ear training and other techniques and sites:

It's crazy how everyone essentially agrees there is a way to do it, but it always comes down to how it “feels”; is it “finished”? Where it “lands”. And other ambiguous phrases.
