Hello, I'm using Studio One 4 Artist

When I drag a midi file into a new song or create the song with a right click and "open with" Studio One the instruments seem to play back correctly.  If I try to drag an instrument such as tuba onto a low pitched track written in the bass cleff, the tuba sounds an octave too high.  This seems to be happening for all the tracks.  There were originally "choir ahs" in my midi file created in Sibelius.  When I record the voice parts, I like to use different instruments as a vocal guide.  Flute for soprano, Clarinet for alto, cello of for tenor and trombone or tube for bass.  These are used as guides for the singers when recording the voice parts.  This is impossible when the voices are sounding an octave to high.  The soprano and alto were notated in treble cleff, the tenor in tenor clef and the bass in bass clef.

Any help would be appreciated.

In the pro version you can click a track and go to the inspector. There you can tune the track an octave lower.
