I am the song director at a small church. I use canned piano music for my hymns. I am limited on a lot of hymns because my vocal range can’t reach either the high notes or the low notes depending on a particular song. Is there music editing software where I can change the key without changing the tempo. I currently have all my songs on CD and can load them onto a windows laptop with no problem. These are purchased discs and they have an open license for churches.
As a follow-up, I want to take the edited songs and keep them digitally to play them through some type of player through my mixing board. I don’t really have any desire in burning them back onto a CD to play them. That is so ooooollllldddd technology. Got a player to recommend? All I currently have is a dual disc CD/CD-R player/recorder.
Karl, are these canned music file an actual audio file, or are they midi? Programs like melodyne and autotune can do this with one instrument at a time, if your canned music is just the piano. A midi file could be transposed to another key in any midi editor.
