-If the ''​I:​transpose''​ directive is used for a tune which has one or more voices written for transposing instruments,​ then the transposition is combined with the transposing instrument by adding the transposition'​s ''​shift-score''​ and ''​shift-sound''​ modifier equivalents into the existing ''​shift''​ modifiers that have been used to specify transposing instrument (even if they have to be inferred).+If the ''​I:​transposition''​ directive is used for a tune which has one or more voices written for transposing instruments,​ then the transposition is combined with the transposing instrument by adding the transposition'​s ''​shift-score''​ and ''​shift-sound''​ modifier equivalents into the existing ''​shift''​ modifiers that have been used to specify transposing instrument (even if they have to be inferred).

 To calculate downward shifts, look up the number in the table and subtract 12 from it (leaving the enharmonic indicator unchanged). To calculate downward shifts, look up the number in the table and subtract 12 from it (leaving the enharmonic indicator unchanged).
  
-// Example: // To transposing up from ''​K:​C''​ to ''​K:​G''​ (the row headed ''​K:​C''​ and the column headed ''​G''​) is a positive shift of 7 semitones and hence ''​I:​transpose ​7''​ is used. Transposing down from ''​K:​C''​ to ''​K:​G''​ is (7 - 12) = -5 semitones and hence ''​I:​transpose ​-5''​ is used.+// Example: // To transposing up from ''​K:​C''​ to ''​K:​G''​ (the row headed ''​K:​C''​ and the column headed ''​G''​) is a positive shift of 7 semitones and hence ''​I:​transposition ​7''​ is used.
