Concert pitch or not??
firstly sorry as I'm new to writing scores at all. I started 4 weeks ago and need to enter multiple songs for Trumpet, Alt Sax, Tenor Sax and Trombone. i want all in the same score as this is nicer for rehearsal.
The way i start is by importing a midi file of choice. that way i also have the drums in. usually it will only import one two instruments that i's looking for so i need to create the remaining, thats fine.
What i do not understand is the "Concert Pitch" button depending on its state the scores look completely different and in some cases they show notes that i can not hit :-). I also tested this by just starting a completely new score from scratch just enter the instruments and enter notes. can anyone explain this feature to me. i read that it's used for transposing instruments ok but what does it mean? why do the scores change so much.
I also experienced that whenever i would like to have just one # in my Alt sax that i need to drag multiple b to the bar in order to get rid of all # why is that??
thanks in advance
