I want to create 2 midi tracks:

First track plays some simple pattern and loops it.

In a second track I want to specify a note, which should indicate how to transpose first midi track (basically a pitch signal of some sort)

Someone knows the best way to achieve this?

Sounds like you're looking for an arpeggiator.

With some plugins, you can either program a step-sequenced arpeggio, which triggers on a MIDI note event.

These will mostly be atonal/chromatic, and won't necessarily adhere to any scales that you're using. There may be some that have this intelligence however.

  • thank you for a good idea, atonal arpeggiator is exactly what I was looking for! Commented Nov 24, 2014 at 19:22
