The “Transpose Setup…” option on the MIDI menu opens a dialog with settings for transposing the selected notes.


You can also use the transpose track for transposing.


This is where you set the amount of transposition.

Scale Correction

Scale Correction transposes the selected notes by forcing them to the closest note of the selected scale type. This can be used for creating interesting key and tonal changes, either by itself or in conjunction with the other settings in the Transpose Setup dialog.

  • To activate Scale Correction, click the checkbox.

  • Select a root note and scale type for the current scale from the upper pop-up menus.

  • Select a root note and scale type for the new scale from the lower pop-up menus.

    Make sure to select the correct root note if you want to keep the result in the same key as the original notes, or select an entirely different key if you want to experiment.

Use Range

If this option is activated, transposed notes will remain within the limit that you specify with the Low and High values.

If a note would end up outside this limit after transposition, it is shifted to another octave, keeping the correct transposed pitch if possible. If the range between the upper and lower limit is very narrow, the note will be transposed “as far as possible”, i. e. to notes specified with the Low and High values. If you set Low and High to the same value, all notes will be transposed to this pitch!

OK and Cancel

Clicking OK performs the transposition. Clicking Cancel closes the dialog without transposing.
