Changing , then saving a midi file
« on: June 16, 2020, 01:27:22 AM »
I have never been able to figure out how to change and save a midi file. The manuels just do not explain:
OK
I have a midi file that is in the key of G. I am not sure how I even determined that. My singer needs it in the key of A and I need to play it using the key of C. Complicated enough? I know how to use the transpose up two steps to get the file to "A". However, I have never been able to save that file. And on top of that, I want to play it using the key of "C".
Make my life easier !!
Thanks in advance

I donít know how to save the revised song either, but why bother? Just make the required transpositions on the keyboard.

Set transposition assign to keyboard
Transpose down 7
Set transposition assign to Song
Transpose up 2

Now save this in a registration, and you never have to do it again.

Cheers,

I still do not know how to save the entire song with it transposed  from F sharp and save it to transpose to C chord ...it will change it to C  and I can play it but it will not save it to C ...it will not keep the changes .

I'm really don't remember if the transposition works directly on Keyboard but for any kind of changes for midi you must to be in SONG RECORD first and there is the save option.
You can choose a software way using free Mix Master and transpose everything except Drum tracks.

Load midi file into the keyboard.
Transpose to the key you want by pressing the transpose button on the KB.
Write down the number it was transposed to (Ex. +3 or +4 or -2 or -5)
IMPORTANT: Reset the transpose number back to zero before proceeding.
Go into Song Creator.
Tab over to the Channel tab
Scroll down to Channel Transpose
Press the ch 9-16 button (on the right)
Press and hold the All Channel button
While holing the All Channel button, Press one of the bottons near the slider then number of times until you get the same number it was transposed to (Ex. +3 or +4 or -2 or -5)
Release the All Channel button.
Press the button under the channel 10 and set just this one channel back to 0(zero).
Press the Execute button.
Press the Save button.
(rename the song if you want to)
Press ok.
The above will save the song transposed in the key you want.
It's important to reset the transpose number number back to zero before going into Song Creator.

Usually Channel 10 is the drum track. You do not want to transpose the drum track.
