I’m sorry; I used the word “chord” on purpose hoping there wouldn’t be a misunderstanding; I’m not talking about melody… I know I can raise individual notes up and down an octave; that’s actually fairly easy… It’s a chord I want to play in the octave below for one of the I ii iii IV V vi or vii° Chords.
But, I’m thinking with Hookpad; I’m just stuck with chords from a single octave.
I’ve messed around a little, and it appears that I can ‘kind of’ get it to do this a little, if I’m willing to play in a KEY that produces chords that are “higher” than another KEY which turns out to be lower. But, since we can’t really say which of the notes are going to be used to play a chord, except that those notes are within some (12 notes chormatically) it’s a hit or miss.
For example; let’s say I pick the key of A, and that starts with the I chord as 1,3,5 on Note A as root. If I’m lucky, and I then do a key change, and pick say C, or some note lower than A, as the root that “has” the lower chord I want to play …in that key, and the Root note is lower than the A, woo hoo… I can make a chord which is lower in pitch than what I can get in the key of A (presuming that A starting at A uses the A above middle C and the key of C uses the notes of that key ON middle C. But, it seems that is not always the case.
So, making this simple… If I choose the Key of C, and play the root (I) chord (the first one in the list Roman numeral 1. And, C starts at middle C on a piano… What if I wanted to play the C chord with the root note starting on C (below Middle C). It seems we are stuck with only having chords that use the 12 notes in the octave to make the chord. (Perhaps, I might find there are a few INVERSIONS that “might” use some C other than middle C; but, since we don’t know what notes Hookpad is using to make the chord, this is hit or miss.
