In song mode. I am trying to transpose some notes, but I can only do it by full tones. Is there any way to transpose half a tone, or anything other than full tones (0,1,2,3, so on)? For instance, what if I want to transpose to the middle of 0 and 1?

Thanks!

Half tones? one octave has 13 halftones. You can select transpose 1 and you transpose one half tone, so step 13 is one octave higher.

Anyway, every step is one half tone. TRansposing between 0-1 is not possable I think, that means you want to transpose 1/4 tone. LOL.

RE “one octave has 13 halftones”

Hi Jan - I think you’ll find it’s 12.

Otherwise that nice Mr Schoenberg had the wrong name for his radical system of composition!

Best,

B

Boulez,

Yes, silly me. What I ment if you choose 13 for transpose you are one octave higher.

Ehh....no, it is: if you choose 12 for transpose you are one octave higher.

No, I still think you’ll find it is still 12… although C to C is thirteen notes, it takes 12 steps to get there. A transpose of 0 is an oxymoron (meaning: it does not exist)

Bad Mister,

Thanks for correcting me. Ofcourse you are right. Frankly I should know it, because I did use these transpose settings some time ago to get something two octave highers and I remember I used +24.
