Mapping notes to scales

You can map all notes in a specified source scale to equivalent degrees of a destination scale, for example, if you want to transform a passage from major to minor with the same root. You can also exclude individual pitches in both scales from the mapping.

Procedure

  1. In Write mode, select the notes whose pitches you want to map.
  2. Choose Write > Transform > Pitches > Map Scale to open the Map Scale dialog.
  3. Adjust the parameters required for your scale mapping, such as scale roots and scale patterns.
  4. Click OK to save your changes and close the dialog.

Result

The specified pitches in the source scale are mapped to the specified pitches in the destination scale according to your settings.

Tip
  • You can also map scales using the note tools popover.

  • You can change the default behavior of inversions on the Musical Transformations page in Note Input Options.
