So I am a bit of musical luddite. But am starting to teach myself more about musical scales
When selecting a scale on Scales, and then using the Root menu to select a root. What function does that actually serve aside from highlighting the root note? I understand a short press will transpose the scale… but if I do a long hold, is there any functional difference, aside from simply highlighting the root note? This may be a dumb question, but as I said, luddite.
Now as for Transpose… I am looking to set up an A-Minor scale. I think that that is not factory programmed into Scales (I know I can easily set it up myself, but this works towards my question). But I notice that Aeolian in C is. So I select that, and then change the Root to A (from C), with a short press… It does not transpose to A-minor though, as far as I can tell. I assume I am thinking about this all wrong. Maybe someone can set me straight or direct my to some literature that might be helpful. It’s also possible that my question is from such a place of ignorance that it makes no sense at all. lol.
