Concert Pitch (Premium)

The button "Concert Pitch" at the right side of the "Transposition" tab in the main menu allows you to comfortably switch between concert pitch and transposing score. This way, you can enter transposing instruments easily and naturally. Once all notes are set, simply switch back before printing and rehearsing.
