Dragging MIDI doesn't include octave up edit on first chord

Studio one 4.6 (latest) Sampler 2 ( just bought both) It actually sounds like either the octave is lower on the last chords too or maybe the expressions im using are not transferring…hard for me to tell exactly but what is playing in the Sampler window is not what is playing when I drag the midi. I created a 4 chord progression. increased the octave on first chord in the edit window. added expressions same on 1 and 3 chord and 2 and 4. octave up to 4 on first chord. It has lower notes on first chord and last chord phrases for sure. Any idea? and workarounds like playing the sampler vst into an audio track to record it live? thanks
