How to change the tuning of a midi track?

Post by MarkKane » Mon Dec 28, 2020 7:12 am

Hello !

I'm recording a cover of a song that has all its pitched instruments tuned up about 4 cents from A440. I've got some synth tracks that I've recorded using various default VSTs that come with Mixcraft 9. Is it possible for me to tune up these tracks by 4 cents? Cheers!

Hi,

MIDI doesn't work that way. If the virtual instrument you're using has a tuning option, you can use that.

Otherwise, you could convert it to audio, and then use the Transpose option on the Sound tab, typing in fractional values if needed, like 0.3 or whatever.

Might it be possible to record a MIDI pitch bend message which raises the pitch by 4 cents at the beginning of the MIDI track?
