Hi

I know mixcraft is an intuitive application hence the question. Transposition seems slightly different to the theory scenario. For example Bb Minor is notated as 7 sharps indicating c sharp...Is this an enharmonic situation as I am only just learning theory so am head scratching a little...Is transposition of midi files for example a case of transposing in piano roll or is there a better way of doing it

thanks

The notation window is not as fully developed in Mixcraft as in dedicated score editors.

Bb minor is the enharmonic equivalent to A# minor. The key signature for A# minor has 7 sharps. Technically, if we call it Bb it should use flats instead of sharps - obviously! And Bb is normally used rather than A#.

For transposing multi-part midi files, using "Adjust To Project Key" usually does the trick.
