I have a midi part I recorded from my keyboard
Just simple C-F-G-C ,Starting at C-3 on my midi kybd - for a test file.
I hoped that If I changed the Project Root Key in the toolbar and in the Info line to ‘F’
That the Part or eventually the Song would move from the key of C to ‘F’.
So I found I could select the Midi Part and choose Global Transpose Follow in the info line and 5 in the Transpose box and move all the C-F-G-C chords up 5 semi-tones to the key of F or 7 semi-tones to the Key of G .
Or I could put -7 in the transpose box and move the midi part down to the F below c-3
So I transposed my C-F-G-C part down 7 semitones [-7] To F and yes now When I play the part the F chord is the start and not the C chord …so now the part plays the Chords F Bflat C .
It BOTHERS me [easily done ] however… that in the lower zone - it doesn’t give me the proper info …it still shows the C voicings. CEG / FAC / GBD not the voicings for the F/Bflat/C chords . Any way to show the correct voicings in the lower zone after transposing the Midi Part ?
The manual says “Project Root key” - “Changes the Root key of the Project”
Under Transposition P. 330 .
“ The transpose functions for audio and MIDI in Cubase allow you to change the pitches of audio and MIDI for playback without changing the actual MIDI notes or the audio.
You can transpose the following:
● An entire project by changing the Project Root Key on the Project window toolbar.
● Specific sections of your project by creating a transpose track and adding transpose events.
● Individual parts or events by changing their transpose value on the Project window info line. IMPORTANT As a general rule, always set
the root key first when you work with content with a defined root key. “
Is …‘content with a defined root key understanding … what I am missing here ? Understanding that ?
SO - I create a new empty project … set the Project root to C in the toolbar and the Info line and then record a midi part from my keyboard - chords C F G C
After the recording is done and there is midi info in the lower zone … I change the Project root key in both the toolbar and in the Info line - But the song I recorded in C …stays in C … even though I put F in the project Key Boxes.
I can use transpose to change keys for the midi part … how do I use Root project key.
