Chromatic inversion

• Feb 13, 2015 - 05:09

I could swear that I've done this before, but I can't find it again.

I want to highlight some number of measures and invert them absolutely chromatically. Am I missing something, or am I deluded as to my previous actions?

Note: I'm on the 2.0 beta, on Win 7, and am a newby.

So, Thanks!


I find myself wanting to do the same thing. (I looked at the earlier thread, and I don't think it's that relevant.) Inversion could be implemented as a special "alternate" kind of transposition, on the "Notes" menu dropdown; options would be: diatonic inversion (specify a "tonic" for the key, and a pivot note), or chromatic inversion (specify a pivot note only). The pivot note is mapped to itself; the note e.g. a whole-tone above is mapped (if chromatically) to a whole-tone below; etc.

The earlier thread mentions plugins that people wrote to do inversion and retrograde. Has anyone written such a plugin for 2.0.2?
