I'm trying to generate a PDF of music sheet with GarageBand, but there's a problem.

Even though I play an arpeggio F-A-C-E-G, the note C3 (middle-C) is denoted in treble clef.1 Even if I moved it down to bass clef one by one, it somehow goes back to treble clef.

Score on a grand staff, with a middle-C note denoted in treble clef.

Do you have any idea to solve this? More concretely, I want all the notes at or lower than C3 to be denoted in bass clef.

1. In GarageBand, middle C is denoted C3 rather than the standard C4.

    No can do in 2012, maybe the same today discussions.apple.com/thread/4551071 You'll have to use an actual score writing program. Commented Dec 12, 2023 at 18:59

    If you haven’t tried Musescore yet for making sheet music, you should. It’s free. Commented Dec 14, 2023 at 0:31
