  • Why does 'C3' from my master keyboard/protools = 'C4' in VI?

    Does anyone know why 'C3' from my master keyboard/protools = 'C4' in Vienna Instruments?

    Here is my problem - I hit a C3 on my keyboard or protools and it plays an "actual" C3 pitch on the VI instrument (violin for example) ie.corresponding to middle C on the piano. This is all fine. On the VI's keyboard display it also indicates the middle C is struck. GOOD [:D]

    BUT if I then hit that exact same note to assign a keyswitch it says 'C4'!!!!! [:(]

    Is this logical? Or am I missing something?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Because the international standard for Middle C is actually C4. Your keyboard (and many sequencers) are giving the wrong name to Middle C.

  • And the middle C is the 4th C on the piano (it avoid any C-1 )

  • nice one!

  • If you're running Logic, Preferences / Display / General has a drop-down box to assign middle C to C3 (Yamaha) or C4 (Roland). Although it won't affect VI, it is a way to make all the numbers align. I don't know if ProTools has that option.
