Dialog box reference ► Transpose dialog

The Process > Transpose command opens the Transpose dialog box, which allows you to transpose the pitches of MIDI and audio clips up or down by a fixed number of half-steps. It does so by changing the MIDI key numbers of note events and by pitch-shifting audio clips. Simply enter the number of half-steps in the Amount field of the Transpose dialog box; a negative number to transpose down, a positive number to transpose up. See To transpose selected events.
The Transpose dialog box contains the following fields:
The number in this field tells SONAR how many half-steps, up or down (depending on whether you enter a positive or negative number), to transpose the selected data, unless you select the Diatonic Math check box. If you select the Diatonic Math check box, the number in this field tells SONAR how many scale steps to transpose the selected data.
*
Type. Choose the type of audio data you’re transposing (this is a SONAR Platinum feature only).
*
Formant scaling. (this is a SONAR Platinum feature only) possible values range from -2.000 to 2.000 octaves. Formants give a voice its characteristic sound. You can use the Formant Scaling value to offset the pitch transposition you’re applying. For example, if you’re transposing the pitch down, you can raise the formant to try and maintain the characteristics of the sound.
