I’m starting a project and I’m building a very basic chord pattern for a 3 chord song. Here’s where I am:
1-I make a simple beat with Beat Designer…
2- I create an instrument using Halion Sonic and I play a bass (midi channel 2) part to a chord chart that I’ve written.
3- I play the piano (midi channel 1) part.
Pretty straight forward, I’d say.
The song is in E major. I play it back and everything is in G# major. The midi notes are all playing a major 3rd higher. In the editor, if I press an E midi note, it sounds a G#. If I press the E note on the piano roll to the left, it sounds E. So, even though the midi note is on the E note of the piano roll, and the piano roll notes sounds correctly, the actually note sounds a G#. All of the chords are a major 3rd higher; same with the bass part.
I’ve checked all of the transpose functions in Halion; nothing there.
What am I missing?
