MIDI Playback One Octave Too High


MIDI is playing all the notes of a violin track an octave higher than written.  It's not an instrument thing; I've tried a bunch of different patches.  The MIDI device is a Roland XV-5050.  I've used it for many years and can't recall this ever happening before.  Specifically, the first written note is Bb middle line treble clef.  Right clicking on the note shows it as Bb5.  It plays back as the Bb one ledger line above the treble clef.  Bb4 should be slightly higher in frequency than 440 A, like 466.16 to be precise.  The written Bb4 should sound at 466.16 Hz but MIDI is playing it at 932.33.  Does anyone have an idea of why this is happening?
