It would be nice to have a "Global Transpose" setting similar to the tempo setting box (in the upper left corner).

Many of us use Live for complete midi sequence and music/audio backup tracks in live shows. Some days we may need to play the songs a half step lower because the lead-singer has a cold or something. Live is great for this. The way it is now we have to edit the transposition for each clip/track individually. This is very time consuming and can't really be done on-the-fly (in case of emergency). One way is to save a copy of the set with the transposition, but it would be very nice to be able to have a global setting that transposes all specified clips at will; even during a song's performance (more or less the same way we do with tempo).

There will have to be an option for assiging this feature only to specific clips you want transposed, so clips that contain drum/percusion/rhythmic material stay unaffected.

More robust transposing features in general would be nice. It's no fun selecting all the notes in a clip, then hitting up or down the amount of semitones I need to move the notes to get them to a different key. Maybe have a transpose function in the ClipBox...

why not add a transpose device to each track and midi map one knob on a controller to all of them?
