The concept of pitch rotation is discussed in the chapter "Creating Variation 3: Note Transformations" in my book 'Making Music: 74 Creative Strategies for Electronic Music Producers.'

1) Weird things happen if you try to rotate pitches with chords selected; it's best used for monophonic lines (and this is really the only context in which pitch rotation makes sense anyway.)
2) When rotating durations, notes may become long enough to extend into an existing note of the same pitch. In this case, the extended note will be shortened so as not to destroy the next note. This means that your durations may *change*.

0.6 - If no notes are selected, all of the notes in the clip are selected automatically. If the clip contains no notes, nothing happens.

0.8 - Velocities and durations can also be rotated. Changed name of device accordingly.

2 - Updated to work with new note parameters added in Live 11 (probability, velocity range, release velocity). Additionally, any per note/MPE parameters (slide, pressure, etc.) will be retained when rotating other parameters. When using Parameter Rotation in versions of Live earlier than 11, these new parameters won't be accessible.
