Don't transpose the drum part. Or any sound effect parts. Unlike the tonal instruments, the sounds on adjacent keys can be very different. You may be unhappy with the result.The other approach is to use software that can change the values of the actual Note On/Off events so that the song is transposed to the desired octave and key. That way the song will always play in the specified key regardless of your keyboard's capabilities. I think you should be able to do this in just about any DAW-- select all of the Note events in the piano roll and move them up or down en masse the desired number of steps. If the DAW displays each channel as a separate track then you would need to do this for each track (channel). When you're done, export the modified tracks to a new MIDI song file.
Larry, here is something I think you'll find incredibly useful.How do I change the chord of a song? IE: the song is in A and I want to change it to a G.
