Trumpet Mute V sounds a fourth too high. Why?

I noticed that the harmon muted trumpet plays a fourth higher than the key I pres on my keyboard. I also noticed this same problem witht he patch called blanket of snow in the pads area. Does anyone know why these two patches don't sound concert pitch the way every other patch in dimension Pro does? I can't seem to alter this behavior. Where do I alter the transposition of these two patches?
Thanks,
Kevin

    I haven't noticed this, it seems to be in tune, except for the 2nd C# (if I remember correctly). I'll double check tonight.

    Where do I alter the transposition of these two patches?


    Under the wave sample name (in the main view) look for "transpose" and move up or down, the values are in semitones.

    Well, I found the transposition. Now, how do I save the transposed part. I shouldn't have had to transpose the thing because it shouldn't be off at all but... How do I save it.

    Look at the four buttons top right, the first one that looks like a page with a folded corner. Click that one and look for "save" and then save it with whatever name you want and in the folder of preference, if you want you can save it with the same name and replace the previous (this is from memory, I don't have my daw in front of me now)

    Is anyone else experiencing this? I mean the transposed muted trumpet. I forgot to check, but I remember recording a trumpet part over a previosuly recorded piano part and it didn't sound transposed.... Hmmm

    Tried the Save icon and didn't get a dialog to choose a name. I'll try again.

    Any alteration you make to a Dpro preset is saved in the project with doing anything but a save on changes after the alteration of the project. If you wish to save this do a save in the Dpro window, save as and put in a new name.

    Tune is in cents, Transpose is semitones, Shift is Opps I for got, whole steps or octaves.

    Kevjazz,

    I checked last night and you're right. The muted trumpet is transposed a 4th up. I went back to my previous projects and turns out I used the regular trumpet, not the muted one.

    Good pick up. Also if you play the "C" note there is a crackling noise together with the trumpet sound. Hopefull, al this things will be fixed in the upcoming update.

    Thanks. I can confirm both the transposed settings and the noise. We'll fix it in next update, sorry about that.
