I’m using the default sounds that come with Dorico (I haven’t done anything in the Play window). I’m on the sound that’s set when I create a bass guitar player. When I play a C below middle C on my keyboard, it sounds like a bass guitar playing a note written (in bass guitar music) as a C below middle C. In other words, the sound is pitched correctly, with the transposition built in.
But when I play a middle C on my keyboard, Dorico writes a C above middle C. This is true whether “Concert Pitch” or “Transposed Pitch” are selected in the Edit menu.
So I have to either play it where I want to hear it and then transpose it, or play it where it writes correctly and hear it wrong. I can set the octave inside Halion so that the note it writes is the note I hear, but then that’s not the note I play (i.e., I play a C below middle C and it sounds like what a bassist would read as a middle C and prints as a middle C. But I’m still not playing it as a middle C).
All of these alternatives are annoying. Is there a real fix?
