In my previous host, transpositions were not limited to the range currently implemented in GP 3.x. There are times where I found this desirable in order to achieve certain complex mappings.
This limitation has caused me a couple of headaches in the last week.
I had a custom sample in Kontakt that was in a very low range that I wanted to trigger from a very high note that was more than 48 semitones away. My only option was to ‘move’ the sample to a higher note in my custom Kontakt instrument in order to complete this mapping succesfully
I had a orchestra hit in a stock program on my Kronos that I wanted to trigger from a note more than 48 semitones away on my other controller keyboard. While this orchestra hit was the best match for the song I was working on, I ended up having to choose an alternative due to this limitation.
