Hi Rob, first sorry for my bad English Embarrassed
Question : on MIDI note editor (note ruler) i can see the "black keys" on sharp  mode (C#, D#, F# ecc,ecc). How i can see the "black keys" on flat mode (Db, Eb, Gb ecc,ecc) ?

Congratulations on the live-course, besides being useful and very well done, you speak very understandable even for those unfamiliar with the English language. Thanks !  Clap

Hey Weckerle!

Thanks, I'm glad you're liking the course, and finding it easy to understand!

Yeah, the keys are just displayed as sharps not flats, and I'm not aware of a way to change this. So, you just need to remember that C# is Db, D# is Eb, F# is Gb, G# is Ab and A# is Bb.

Cheers,

Rob, thanks for the quick response.
Yes, i remember that C# is Db, D# is Eb, F# is Gb, G# is Ab and A# is Bb, but if i play on F major key (for example), i prefer to see Bb and not A# on my MIDI note editor. However, this is not a Ableton Live serious gap.... i just have to change my musical habit (coming from the conservatory).

Alright Buddy..

I think I may be able to help you with this... if you wanted to transpose D# or flat to C... this would be 1semi-tone

are you familiar with scales Nick??
if not it is quite easy to look up on Wikipedia

it helps to know what key you are playing in also.... so when you transpose you remain in key of the major scale you are playing...

so the link i sent is C MAJOR... Which is all the white notes.. consisting of 8 notes... C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C

As follows in order of the letters TONE - TONE - TONE - SEMI TONE - TONE - TONE - TONE - SEMI TONE

so F and the last C in this order are SEMI TONES..... BECAUSE there is no black key in between the white keys

So if you want to transpose from D TO C this would be 2 semi tones (2 semi tones = 1 tone)  C#  &  C

If you wanted to transpose from F TO C this would be 5 semi tones  E D# D C# C

I hope this makes sense to you...Thumbs Up
any more questions just ask away

Peace Ying Yang
