- I have a lot of experience working with GarageBand and other audio recording tools, and while working on various musical projects, I have made extensive use of the transposition feature of these programs.
- This article will walk you through the process of transposing in GarageBand.
In order to provide you a new tool to work with when you are recording and producing music, I will walk you through the steps that need to be taken in order to make this happen on your Mac or iPhone. Let’s get started.
How do I transpose a whole track?
It seems that no one has responded in quite some time. Simply posing a new inquiry will kick off a new round of the dialogue. I’m using GarageBand right now, and I’m trying to change the key of a song. I dragged a song to a track, pushed control + option + G to make the selection “purple,” and then I went to the editor and selected the checkbox underneath the pitch slider.
The slider is active, but it won’t go back and forth and it won’t enable me to modify the pitch.

Changing the “Pitch” control’s value, which is shown in cents, will cause the track to be transposed. A complete octave would cost one dollar and one penny.

How to change the distance between notes in GarageBand?
You can transpose chosen audio regions by clicking here. Choose the areas that need to be edited in the Tracks section of the Mac version of GarageBand. In the Audio Editor inspector, you need to make sure that the Region tab is chosen. To transpose the regions in semitones, drag the Transpose slider to the left or right of its position.
How do I transpose Midi regions and Apple Loops?
Using the Transposition track, you may transpose (alter the playback pitch of) MIDI regions and Apple Loops that are contained within a project throughout the course of its duration. The transposition track includes places for changing pitch at various transposition positions (transposition events).
The project undergoes a transposition whenever it reaches the transposition point, at which time it stays at the newly determined value of the transposition until the subsequent transposition point. Apple Loops, both audio and software instrument versions, as well as MIDI regions, are affected by transposition.
The only exceptions to this rule are drum loops and other Apple Loops that do not have a set key. If the Follow Tempo and Pitch option is not checked for the track that contains the audio regions, the audio regions will not be transposed. The only exception to this rule is audio Apple Loops.
The first key signature of the project may be heard when the zero position of the Transposition track is selected. The process of transposition is nondestructive, and any MIDI notes that have been transposed will revert to their original values if the value of transposition is reset to zero (0). For instance, if a MIDI region begins with a note event in the key of C3, adding a transposition point with a value of +2 transforms the note event to one in the key of D3.
If you alter the value of the transposition point to a different number, the note will be transposed by the amount that corresponds to the new number. When the transposition point is moved so that the transposition value equals zero, the note reverts to a C3 position.
In a similar fashion, the notes in a region will change by the appropriate amount if you duplicate it to a different portion of the project and then transpose it using a different value than the original. When you add or change a transposition point in a project, the only MIDI events that are transposed are those that already exist in the project.
MIDI events that are captured or produced after the fact are unaffected by this change.
