I'm using Cubase 11 pro with the synchronized SE volume 1 library. 
When I open an instrument it shows the range of the instrument on the keyboard but I notice that when I start playing on my keyboard or add notes via the midi editor, I have to add them an octave lower. 

Notice that in the screenshot, the violins range from G3 to A#7 but when I play the G2 note on my keyboard or add the G2 note manually in the midi editor, it plays the same as when I press the G3 note in the synchron player. 

I don't think there is a general setting that lowers everything by an octave as it's only the syncrhon player where I see this issue. Other plugins don't have this... 

Is there something I am missing here? 

The issue is that when I export my midi so I can import it into Dorico, the notes are actually an octave to low and I have to augment them by an octave in order for the score to be accurate but then playback isn't accurate anymore...

In the Synchron Player click the cog-wheel symbol to enter Settings, then in the Interface tab change Middle C to conform to your Cubase assignment. I always use C3. Different platforms assign Middle C differently. Any platforms you are connecting have to match or there will be an octave difference.

oh ok thanks. So there is actually nothing wrong... Just the way the synchron player shows the range... 
When I changed it to C3 it does match with my midi inputs and my songs sound the same so it was kinda a non issue :)
