Does the voicing change when you transpose keys?

Hello, I was on the Dragonborn skyrim track, when I transpose from Bminor to Dminor, suddenly I see that the chords voicing is not the same anymore

Any explanation on that ?

Thanks !


Chords are voiced so that their pitches fall within a general pitch register. By changing the key, this voicing may change since the pitches in the chords are also different. E.g., if a C chord is voiced C E G, then a E chord might be voiced B E G# rather than E G# B since the former voicing preserves the register more faithfully. If you’d like to keep the voicing the same after switching keys, you can nudge the octave slider in the band tool to compensate.
