    Default Negative Melodies, automatic transposition in ABC?

    Just watched this vid talking about how Rachmaninoff used negative melodies and I wondered if anyone knows of a way to automatically transpose .ABC files into their negative melody equivalents? And also, how to transpose ‘normal’ tunes into exotic keys.
