Excluding Individual Parts or Events from Global Transpose

If you add global transposition, for example, by changing the root key or by creating transpose events, you can exclude specific events from being transposed. This is useful for drum and percussion loops or special effects (FX) loops.


  1. Select the event or part that you want to exclude from being transposed.
  2. On the info line, click the Global Transpose field to set the value to Independent.

    Events that are excluded from Global Transpose carry a symbol in the upper right corner.


If you change the project root key or add transpose events, the Independent parts or events are not affected.


Ready-made parts or events that are tagged as drums or FX are automatically set to Independent.
