It's actually Eb not D#.. I know same thing but when it comes to writing it out you don't have two Ds in a scale... and It's most likely C harmonic Minor

Edit: Which consists of C D Eb F G Ab B

where can you find what notes are in what scale? i cant find it anywhere on google. and isnt the key the first note it starts? my riff start with a D but its in key of C harmonic minor?

you need to learn some music theory if it starts on D it could be the D Locrian mode which is the C harmonic minor scale but starting on the D instead of C, it contains all the same notes as the C harmonic minor just starting on a different note

it doesnt seem to fit anywere. the key of C has them all exept for the D#


Then give it a minor tonality (Eb) et voila! You have your C harmonic minor right there.

Are these all individual notes or are they chords? When I see it written like that it implies they're all major chords to me

A scale is build off notes. With those notes you can make enharmonical chords.

Givin' this example I would be C Eb G (C minor) and IV would be F Ab C (F minor).

-edit- oh, it's a reply to the OP, didnt get that

And @ TS: it's harmonic minor, not melodic minor. Could be though if there's an A.

4 single notes isn't "in" anything...there's no way to know how those notes will function without a lot more information, there needs to be a context.

Unless you can show us what those notes are being played over then there's not going to be a key, nor is it worth worring about because arbitrariily finding something that happens to contain those 4 notes isn't going to tell you anything.

As it stands, all you have there is 4 random notes, there's nothing more you can say about them and nothing more that needs to be said until you start building a bigger picture.

The key of C can totally have D# in it.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Dingdingdingdingding!

You often can't evaluate a key just by listing the notes in that key. Eb is a *common* note used in C major. You see the Eb major chord used fairly frequently (the bIII isn't as common as the bVII, but it's still around a lot).

If you want to know what key you are in, listen for the resolution of the melody or the progression.

While Eb is a possibility as well, I specifically meant D#

apologies D Locrian #6 would be the scale

Couldnt it also be involved with e harmonic minor ?


E harmonic minor doesn't have a D in it. Also the question is about keys, and there's only two broad genres, minor and major. Harmonic minor is the name associated to a scale which employs accidentals to the minor.

However as pointed out above, the correct answer is ANY key. The notes can be used in any key without further information.
