Interval dialog box
How to get there
- Click the Selection tool , and select a region of music.
- Choose Utilities > Transpose.
- Choose Interval > Other.
What it does
If, when you’re transposing some music,
none of the intervals listed in the Interval pop-up list represent what you want, you
can use this dialog box to specify any other interval.
• Alteration. In the Interval text box, enter the number of diatonic
(scale degree) steps—and in the Alteration box, enter the number of chromatic
steps—by which you want the selection transposed. For example, to transpose
something up or down a tritone (so a C would become F sharp, for example),
enter 4 as the Interval, and 1 as the Alteration (4 diatonic steps, plus
one chromatic step). If you’ve selected Diatonically in the Transposition
dialog box, the Alteration box is dimmed.
• Cancel. Click OK to confirm, or Cancel to discard, your interval
setting and return to the Transposition dialog box.
