Transpose MIDI Notes - Pro Tools 9

Check out Bas Rutten's Liver Shot on MMA Surge: After you record a MIDI performance you may need to raise or lower the pitch of the notes. This can help fix the the song if the frequencies don't fit well or you want to lower or raise the key. Transposing adjusts the pitch without changing the melody, the velocity or the other parameters of the performance.? Start off by selecting the smart tool at the top tool bar. Then use the selector tool to click and drag over the whole section of notes that you want to raise or lower.? Once the notes are highlighted, hover over one note until the cursor becomes the grabber tool. Click and drag the notes up or down the scale to any point you want.? The notes will all move together so you can maintain the same melody. Only the key will be different.? If you want a faster way to automatically transpose an entire track, first click and drag to highlight all the notes on the track. Then go to Event--Event Operations--Event Operations Window to open the Event Operations window. In the dropdown menu, select Transpose.? This window lets you automatically transpose over the whole region. This can help if you're not classically trained in music, so you don't have to worry about measuring octaves or keys.? You can transpose notes by octaves, semitones or keys by entering values or using the horizontal sliders. Read more by visiting our page at:
