Not a VST, but nevertheless a very useful tool for those who don’t have perfect pitch:

CLAM Chordata 1.0

Chordata is a simple but powerful application that analyses the chords of any music file in your computer. You can use it to travel back and forward the song while watching insightful visualizations of the tonal features of the song. Key bindings and mouse interactions for song navigation are designed thinking in a musician with an instrument at hands.

...if the same composition is played in different keys you perceive it entirely different? Christian Schubart, for example, described G major keys as
“Everything rustic, idyllic and lyrical, every calm and satisfied passion, every tender gratitude for true friendship and faithful love,—in a word every gentle and peaceful emotion of the heart is correctly expressed by this key”.
and B major as
“Strongly colored, announcing wild passions, composed from the most glaring colors. Anger, rage, jealousy, fury, despair and every burden of the heart lies in its sphere”.

I would really like to know if absolute listeners also experience different keys like this. Also, if an instrument is tuned at A=440 or A=432, does it make any difference in the feeling it conveys?

One problem I have is that I can hardly transpose a song. For example, a guitar solo is just words to me in a natural way (like lyrics). Is very strange and complicated to try to convert it in other words.

So, if the same composition is played in different keys you perceive it entirely different? Christian Schubart, for example, described G major keys as
“Everything rustic, idyllic and lyrical, every calm and satisfied passion, every tender gratitude for true friendship and faithful love,—in a word every gentle and peaceful emotion of the heart is correctly expressed by this key”.
and B major as
“Strongly colored, announcing wild passions, composed from the most glaring colors. Anger, rage, jealousy, fury, despair and every burden of the heart lies in its sphere”.

Do you also experience it that way, even in even-tempered tuning?

Does it make any difference to you if an instrument is tuned at A=440 or A=432?

The project here is a 10 seconds opener, so regardless of whether it’s going to be used in a series or not, you will need one extended license.

Recently I charged $200 just for making short versions of various lengths. By including short versions on the house just to “please everyone” you’re giving up such opportunities.

Click EDIT, indicate duration of each version in the description, click SAVE CHANGES. Now upload a zip that contains the both versions and a new preview file. Write in the message to the reviewer what you did and click SUBMIT.

I had an argue with @Doru once:
Looks like I’m winning!

No wonder, you’ve got tons of experience in doing that:
