Running Ableton live 9 Suite.
I made these midi clips:
Is there a way to automate the transposition of these chords to another key?
Ideally I would like to do this with a few key strokes if thats possible.
A midi transposition effect should do exactly what you're after. I am pretty sure its parameters can be controlled via automation.
Unless you want to edit the notes in place. In that case Cmd-A (select all), then use the up/down keys to transpose the pitch up and down. Hold down shift to go by octave.
You could also use the Transform tools: https://www.ableton.com/en/manual/clip-view/#transform-tools
the Transpose slider transposes the selection. Type a number to transpose by semitones. Type a note name to set the lowest note. Adding a “-” before the note name sets the highest note
Hope that helps!
Try using the pitch midi effect to transopse your midi input by semitones
