    How do you change the key of a song after you have started it? I thought maybe if you save as, but that didn't work. Any ideas??

    EDIT:
    Nevermind

    What exactly is it you want to do, and why? Remember, the 'key' that you choose for a song in GB, is only nominal - it doesn't really mean anything, other than help to filter the loops available. If I set the key of a song to C but actually play my song in F, GB doesn't care. It will just record whatever audio and midi input I give it.

    If you are using loops and you want to change their key, then simply select them and transpose them to whatever key you want.

    Hope this helps.

    same problem... NEED HELP!

    So when using the pitch correction on vocals... it DOES matter what key you choose before you start the project.

    I chose the wrong key when I began my project.. I'm hours of work into it, and now that I'm recording vocals, the pitch correction makes them sound weird because it's the wrong key! when I change the key at the bottom window, it completely transposes the instrumentation which I don't want.

    is there any way just to alter the key of the vocals? please help. :confused:


    EDIT!!! NEVERMIND: it appears the vocal pitch correction only matches the instruments you are using. some bad recordings were throwing it off! bye.
