2 basses to low to hear

Hi, I am writing a piece for 2 basses. Wile entering and checking the music I would like the playback to be one or two octaves higher… I just want the playback higher, not what I see on my screen.

and if I change the instrument to cello, what I see is one octave lower… I could transpose up and then later down, but there should be a smarter way???

I would change the octave in the VST temporarily.

Or change the transposition in the Expression map:

Another possibility would be to temporarily compose for two violas - and then later copy into the Bass staves and shift the music two octaves down.
