Hi, new user here, hope I'm in the right place in the forum, apologies if not!

I imported a MIDI with both right and left hand piano notes separated on different tracks to spiff it up. Editing the right hands notes in the piano roll sounds fine. Left hand notes, however, are off-key (E flat sounds like E). I scoured my track settings and couldn't find anything different between the "right hand" and the "left hand" tracks. There are no FX applied. This makes editing... difficult, due to the left hand notes sounding incorrect, even when the right notes/chords have been input.  The problem persists if I move the left hand notes into a brand new track with a new instrument. and out of the original MIDI track. I tried Google, to no avail. Any input is appreciated!

You might want to check the  TRACK PANE to see that the KEY # widget hasn't been changed to +1 . You can easily select that whole track and transpose - if the key notes are actually not correct. If they are correct in piano roll view but playing back a semi tone sharp then it's likely that something is transposing it upwards one note. Cake walks MIDI playback has been rock solid since well before the turn of the century.

RBH, I did as you recommended and brought the Track Pane up, but I can't find a KEY# Widget that you're mentioning. I have auto focus, auto lock, and filter, but no KEY# widget. I have auto focus, auto lock, filter, and a list of my tracks, with the mute and solo functions, is there another button I need to push within track pane?

Key+ is in the track inspector "Q" in the image below.

Thank you Scook, I found it with your reply; I was looking in the piano roll's Track pane rather than the track pane off to the side. My Key+ is at 0, and the piano roll was still off key. I guess I can put it to -1 then to solve the issue of the notes sounding a key too high, but I'm still curious as to what else could be causing the issue.
