This somewhat relates to Request https://answers.presonus.com/39202/weird-octave-discrepancies-studio-paino-roll-tuner-spectrum.

Octave numbers are inconsistent. Here is an example:

* Play C4 on an external Keyboard instrument.
* The Virtual Keyboard in the edit window displays C3, but when clicked, plays C4 - so the trigger of the VST is correct, but not the note displayed
* The horizontal bar displaying notes, displays C3, but plays C4 when clicked
* When clicking Play on transport bar, C3 plays - huh? why does transport follow the wrong display, and not the actual note value?

BUT it gets worse when transposing.

Here is an example after transposing:

* Play C4 on an external Keyboard instrument.
* The Virtual Keyboard in the edit window displays C3, but when clicked, plays C4
so far the same, but then:
* The horizontal bar displaying notes, displays C3, but plays C5 when clicked -- now suddenly, instead of being wrong one octave down, it is now wrong octave up - thus actually two octaves wrong (C3 to C5)
* When clicking Play on transport bar, C5 plays

Imagine the confusion when more than one simultaneous notes must be edited.

Please fix this.
