Suggestion: Transpose selected notes with arrow keys

A small change that could help many people a lot: Make the current selection respond to the arrow keys (Up/Down) so we can transpose notes by semitiones instead of using the mouse (which is very fiddly).

Left/Right would also be nice if a grid can be selected. Although that’s not as important as transposing.

If you’re using the Pro edition, you can assign scripts to the arrow keys via the Settings menu do this.

Check the “Move Notes Up/Down/Left/Right” scripts here: svstudio-scripts · SynthV Studio scripts by Claire (

(Just a footnote – embedded JavaScript doesn’t run very nicely in Logic Pro, so many of these scripts will see Lua revisions in the future. It’s a rather long to-do list before I’ll actually be done with it, so apologies if that ends up being an obstacle for you)


Thanks. Sounds great. I wasn’t aware of scripting yet. I use Logic Pro for demo tracks.
