I’m not exactly sure when this started, but Dorico is currently playing everything back 1/2 step lower than written. Playback Options/Tuning has A set to 440 and my Default Expression Map has transposition set to 0 so that shouldn’t be doing anything. It doesn’t appear to be file specific as all files seem to currently exhibit this behavior. I’ve checked my MIDI keyboard with my piano and tuner to make sure it isn’t somehow playing it transposed (even though that setting is visibly off) and my keyboard is correct. Dorico definitely wasn’t doing this last week so it must be something I’ve inadvertently changed. This is maddening as I’m trying to write and spot-check voicings though. If I export XML, and import into Finale it plays correctly at pitch.
Here’s a sample file exhibiting this behavior. I’m curious if it plays back at pitch on another system or if it’s 1/2 step low. Anyone have any idea what’s going on? I’m trying to finish an arrangement for rehearsal tomorrow and this is driving me nuts.
