Is the Alto Sax and Piano Transposed Correctly

Post by djdillyc » Thu Nov 21, 2019 3:51 am

Hello,

I am writing for alto sax and piano. The piano is in F major and the Alto sax is in D Major (which I believe is F on an alto sax). I am just wondering if I transposed the notes correctly.

Thanks

This is my first time doing this.

To check whether a transposition is correct:

1) Click the Playback button, and listen!

or

2) Document menu > Display in Concert Pitch (select)
When {Display in Concert Pitch} is selected, you can see, what pitches are being played.
You can de-select {Display in Concert Pitch} when you are done.
