Concert Pitch

Don't think so. Concert Pitch is the way way the notes are in score. Some instruments (most actually) have a limited range of notes compared to an 88 Key piano. There is concert and normal scoring to account for this so that musicians can don't have to convert music in their heads as they play. Samplitude in the midi score area would need to recognize the instrument and then convert concert pitch to the pitch for instrument chosen. The issue occurs with what is called a transposing instrument, a B Flat Clarinet seeing a C on a standard notation would actually be playing a B flat. Musicians used to have to do the transposing in their heads as the played now days scoring programs do it separately on different lines of for each instrument. It would have to be done in the score part of Samplitude with the program interpreting the score for each instrument.

Go to Score Properties in the Midi Editors Score menu.

If the Midi Editor is docked right click in the area above the Piano Roll to access the menu.

Best, Thomas
