AUM keyboard labeled incorrectly?
« on: October 08, 2018, 12:47:10 AM »
I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong or if the notes on the built in keyboard are incorrect.

If I open any synth, in this case Zeeon, as a standalone and play C3 as labeled on its keyboard it plays C3, now in AUM if I load it as an audio unit and play the same patch I press the C3 key as labeled and C4 plays. The transpose setting is at +0 semitones, changing note range has no effect, and the rest of the settings seem normal as well. I checked a third app to confirm, using Xequence and playing C3 it plays C3, it is only AUM playing the wrong note.

A pretty minor annoyance but I was scratching my head for a bit trying to figure out what is going on. It's also not specific to that one synth, it's the same for every one I tried.

Different manufacturers use different octave numbers for middle C (MIDI note 60). It's either C3, C4 or C5, there's no standard unfortunately. AUM's keyboard labels it C4. I could easily change it to C3 if people think that that's more common?
