The Key Chromagram, which shows you a graphical representation of how well each note fits into the detected key over time. The key chromagram is divided into 12 columns, each representing one of the 12 notes in an octave (from C to B). The color of each column indicates how well the note matches with the key: green means perfect match, yellow means acceptable match, red means poor match.
