I’m dropping this in here as I have seen a couple of questions recently about transposing.
If you have a pattern of chords in Section A, then you can transpose the patternby clicking on either semitone - or + to the right of the pattern:
to transpose by semitones, or on the padlock button
to force the pattern to a new scale.
If you want to transpose a pattern or patterns you have created in Section C select the pattern(s) and use the transpose buttons on the EDIT page
To transpose by octeaves use the OCTAVE - or +
andfor semitones use the SEMITONE - or +
Note that having slected a pattern by dragging your mouse over it
you only have to click on one transpose buton (+ or -) and the whole pattern is transposed.
Hope this helps.
Not quite correct. To transpose the whole pattern you need to lasso all the pads.
Thanks @jamieh, you correct I should have said that (I need an editor) to transpose the whole pattern you must first lasso it by dragging your mouse over it.
yes. This is an approach, but not particularly convenient.
I now prefer to transpose in BIAB.
Of course, I still try to find chords at SCALER first. Next, go to BIAB to become a DEMO, and listen to what you want.
An update to clarify how to transpose the entire song by one or more semitones:
Got to the EDIT page
Select all the blocks in the pattern
Then click the + or - on the semitone row to trasnspoase the blocks in the pattern up or down.
If you have more than one pattern you have to do this on each pattern.
Thank you for sharing.
I hope it can be designed to be more convenient.
It is just 2 moves: lasso + click on a button
and if you need more variations, you can transpose in a different way all chords (skipping the lasso)
Is there a few seconds how-to video. I want to see.
I guess it may be that I didn’t learn how to do it.
I don’t understand why youngs have so much difficulties to understand a simple picture like the one posted by @ed66
unfortunately, I am unable to make videos but maybe others will help you
As @ed66 already pointed out - Lasso all chords in a pattern. Transpose up or down by semi-tones (half steps) on one of the pads and they all change by the same amount. Easy.
Change all patterns by the same amount or different if you want. Until the Devs add Global Transpose this works just fine.
great explanation without any video
