MIDI out of tune - 50 cents below standard pitch

Discussion in 'MIDI' started by vince.rubinetti, Nov 21, 2008.

  1. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this. I've absolutely
    SCOURED google for answers, and found nothing.

    I've been using Sibelius 5 to transcribe a piece, using microsoft gs
    wavetable sw. It's never been out of tune until yesterday, when I
    realized everything was about a half semitone (quarter tone) lower
    than standard pitch. All of my other midi programs are out of tune as
    well; this is how I know it is the whole midi device that is out of
    tune, and not just sibelius, though sibelius most likely caused it.

    I've tried many many things to solve this. I've restarted each of my
    midi programs several times; I've changed playback devices in control
    panel; I've tried looking up midi messages that would reset the
    system. The latter I tried yesterday, and after much fiddling around,
    I think it worked! Sibelius was back to the right pitch. So I come
    back today, and it's out of pitch once again.

    Does anyone have a solution to this? Is there a midi control panel
    where I can adjust the fine pitch?

    I'm running windows XP, btw.

    I appreciate any interest and help.

    Did you try changing the wavetable skip interval? Perhaps you have sound
    card trojan. If you hear chirping sounds at the start of song then is
    likely to be trojan.

  3. Wavetable skip interval? I'll look that up and try it.

    I don't have any chirping sounds. It's probably (hopefully) not a
    sound card issue. I do honestly think it's just a global setting that
    has been set to an undesirable value.

    If it helps, my sound card is HT OMEGA STRIKER 7.1 Channels 24-bit
    96KHz PCI Interface
