    <div class="moz-cite-prefix">Hello Jean-Pierre,<br>
      <br>
      I would take a more musical approach. Always convert the incoming
      information to the semitone scale, and then transform to the final
      scale using a list with definitions like that (pentatonic
      example):<br>
      C-->C<br>
      Cb->C<br>
      D-->Db<br>
      Eb->Eb<br>
      E-->F<br>
      F-->F<br>
      Gb->G<br>
      G-->G<br>
      Ab->G<br>
      A-->Bb<br>
      Bb->Bb<br>
      B-->Bb<br>
      Whether you shift up or down may even depend on the (assumed) base
      note of the scale. Eg. If you think this as pentatonic over
      c-minor, then the E is shifted up to F. If you think this a
      pentatonic scale over Eb-major, the E gets shifted down to Eb. <br>
      (This is what I am working on at the moment for the quantized
      transposition of my midi-stepsequencer
