How to realize A=415

Hi,
I play the traverso (baroque flute). It plays at A=415, so exactly half a tone below A=440.  
 
How can I make a piece sound half a tone lower without altering the notes itself. So for instance a G should look at the score as a G but sound like a F#.
 
At the moment I do not want to bother about the question that for instance A# should sound a bit lower than Bb. At the moment I only look for a real simple solution.  
 
I need this solution to be able study flute duets while HA plays the other voice...  
 
Kind regards,
Sietske Tol

If you want to alter frequency for the whole program, you can use :
Configuration>Digital output configuration  
and set the master tuning to 4150 (10th of Hz)
 
If you want to achieve more complex operations, please refer to the "Alternate tuning" and "microtonal adjustment" sections in the manual.

I think you can also see "transposing" in the documentation.

Do you really think it is possible to transpose 1/4 of note?

Yannick, "half a tone" ça veut dire 1/4 ou 1/2 ton

Sylvain is absolutely right. I did not realize 415 Hz is the frequency for a G# (in fact, 415.3 Hz).
 
In this case, it is much more simple to use a transposing instrument (i.e. set -1 in the "transpose" field of the instrument).

Thanks a lot! I have used Olivier's advice to set the masterpitch at A=4150.
 
It works great! I now have a very nice tool to play in tune as well as studying duets with myself on the baroque flute.  
 
A baroque flute  (especially a one-keyed one) needs a lot of intonation skills in comparison to the modern flute.
So I am very glad to be able to practice now in this great way!
 
Isn't is wonderful: modern 21th century technique helps playing better on a flute built after a model of about 1730.....
 
Thanks again,
