How do you tune one song to match the other you're mixing?

OK, so I'm trying to do an 80's mix. Got a couple of tracks. I have 'converted melody to MIDI track' on both to find out what key they are both in.

The first song, under notes on the bottom left of screen, says the song is in the key 'F0-F#5'. The second song is in the key 'G0-G4'.

How do I tune the second song so it mixes in the same key as the first one? Do I tune the second song down 1ct to match the key F0?

You'll have to excuse my lack of music theory as I'm not a 'musician' as such!

Thanks in advance.

    I don't know all music theorieseither, but do have a good set of ears. So my advice would be: ignore theories, listen to the tracks you want to tune, and adjust pitch until it is in the same key. You can use the clip settings to do this.
