    Concert Pitch
    Hi there, If I want to use an instrument such as a trumpet or saxophone in Logic Pro do I have to transpose the midi for it as if it were a real instrument, or will Logic allow for this and play a C as a C?

    Hi Darren, Are you talking about a real sax or trumpet (recorded as audio) or an apple loop (MIDI or audio) or a sax/trumpet software instrument or exs24 sampler instrument? Cheers Rounik

    If you're talking about a software instrument, when playing a C on a your keyboard you will hear a C. No transposition required. If you need to print a score for other musicians to perform then you will need to transpose the part so the trumpet player plays in the right key. Christian

    Hi Guys, Thanks that was the info I needed. Yes I'm talking about using software instruments such as the EXS24 and the Garageband miniEXS's. Nice to know. All the Best Darren.
