Remember to transpose when performing a score

Discussion in 'Tips, Tricks & Talk' started by Eric Nething, Nov 7, 2022.

  1. To gain practice using my virtual instruments, I decided to audition the Raider's March theme. However, I did not realize that I had to transpose the Bb trumpets, Bb clarinets, F horns, and F cor anglais, since concert pitch is used for virtual instruments. I spent hours adjusting parameters, but it still sounded "off". I set the project aside for several months. After working with score notation in Lilypond for a few days, I suddenly realized the problem with my Raider's audition: I forgot to transpose certain instruments! After I nudged all of the notes the appropriate semitone intervals, it finally sounded like the original recording.
