Octave range mix up

I’m hap hazarding my through the mellotron patch to repurpose it as an 88 key multisampler for keys. But I can’t work out what to do for this transpose (top right section of main.pd)

I want it to go Counter Clock wise -36 to Clock wise 24 for now. But on organelle m -36 -24 -12 are the higher octaves. Tried doing research and copying other patches transpose routing but the other sample patches routing are all a bit different to this. Closest I found was the NESwave engine. This isn’t the biggest issue, but it is an irk.

Or is this an issue to do with octave select in the top leftish area

I think the issue is in [pd octaveselect]. The transposition value coming in the [r oct] inlet is always subtracted from the incoming keyboard notes. But if you send a negative transposition number (like ‘-36’) and then use a [- ] to subtract that negative number, that transposition number will be added instead. So the notes get higher instead of lower. Please see the two results here:
