Tuned flute sound font is offset

What is the issue?

After the Fantastic Melody update, the Tuned Flute instrument plays a half step lower than all other instruments. So a written "C" would sound like a "B flat." This results in the instrument being completely unusable in freestyle jam.

Additionally, the Tuned Flute's sound is now the Festival Flute sound, instead of the original sound.

What steps must be taken to recreate the issue?

Play the Tuned Flute with any other instrument in a freestyle jam. It sounds extremely discordant. If you play it separately you can hear that it is in fact half a step off.

What do I expect to happen instead?

The Tuned Flute should play the note that is written in the score.

Below is a link to my video comparing the Flute and Tuned Flute.

I know that many bards and music lovers are disappointed by this issue, and I hope it can be fixed soon. Thank you!

    Yup, tuned flute's sound file and Festival Flute's sound file have been swapped. I contacted Nexon about this and the most recent I got from them has frustrated me.
    Basically they told me to make a thread in the suggestions section of the forums. My ticket was NOT a suggestion, it's a report on a PROBLEM. But if they really want a suggestion: Just swap the sound files back! Yes I'm a bit ticked now, I wasn't before I got that response but now I am.
    I was gonna say somethin' else but I forget what it was.

    Don't take it personally; I've got a feeling the Support Team mostly consists of GoodBay (an Indian support company that's cheap and bad), and if it is, they won't actually read tickets, or even modify their macro text (their "robot response"). That said, now that it's in the Bugs & Glitches section, it will most likely be taken more seriously, and if it isn't an intentional change, you can bet it'll be corrected quickly.

    I love the new sounds. Never liked the old tuned flute, but the issue with it being a half step lower is fairly major. It sounds 100% horrendous in freestyle jams with other instruments.

    Now, if they could fix the flute back to it's proper soundfont and actually release the festival instruments that have been in the composer and AH for about two years already, then we could keep this sound and the old one, which would be nice.

    Yeah I wish they'd release the Festival Instruments already too. But I prefer the actual tuned flute over the festival one, though I'm sure that will change dependin' on the song played.
    Update: Got an apology from Nexon and they are now treating it as report and not a suggestion.

    That's good to hear. I shall do my best to enjoy the few days I may have left with this version of the flute.

    If they do manage to get this resolved, I'll have to show everyone how my tuned flute songs are supposed to sound, and as to why fixing the tuned flute was so important. But as it is now, it sounds completely horrible, and nothing works.

    I wish they'd release the Festival instruments as well.. we are long overdue. :(
