2/4

No idea on the key signature.

For tempo just use a metronome.
It is in minor with loads of raised sevenths - you can find the pitch with finale or a piano.
Time signature is 4/4.

Unless my recorder is out of pitch, it's in E minor.
As for time signature: I would put 3/4, but a lot of people would use 6/8. So just choose:)

6/8 makes more sense to me, but Jompa knows what he's talking about. Anyways, that's a really beautiful song, can't wait to see it finished!

I'd say definitely 3/4 time, not 6/8, and it is E minor.

Definitely? I can see how it's in 3/4 in the beginning, but does it switch to 6/8 at 0:13 or something? (I know it doesn't, I'd just like to know why.)

You could theoretically put it in 6/8, but it's a very fast waltz tempo, not a slower 6/8 deal. See how it goes 1-2-3 1-2-3? It's very fast, but it is indeed waltz tempo, which is usually 3/4.

I completely disagree, Slow. I think it's 6/8, since I hear 1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 and the beats are definitely on  1 and 3. Although I guess it comes down to personal taste and since I detest fast waltzes... Of course, you could just put it in 6/4 or 12/8 just to shit us all :P

Bah I hate using this thread. But lately it feels like any arranging skills I had before are slowly degrading...

I honestly think this is D minor (I've got the time sig)

Yes, but I hear it as triplets, so wouldn't that makes it /8?

You know, if the beats are at 1 and 3 then it's not 6/8. 6/8 is when the beats are at 1 and 4, but that's probably what you meant.
Actually though, I think you misunderstood Slow and me: you see, we treated your eights as quarters, making half a measure of your 6/8 a measure of 3/4 to us. And that really shouldn't cause trouble with the arrangement, neither is it wrong. Which is why I said one could just choose (you'd have to double the note durations in 3/4 though. I probably should have said that..).
