    I'm joking, the muted trumpet really is similar to a ...very bad oboist playing in lower register!

    I prefer just the mouth piece of a trumpet, as it reminds me of Chekoslovakian oboists...

    Thumbs up Re: Cheap Orchestration Tricks

    TECHNICAL CLEAR UP:

    I like to joke with NMB, but out of jokes,

    - the trumpet has several affinities with the oboe, and join very well.

    oboe+trumpet is a good combi in expressive as articulated phrazing. the muted trumpet is playing as the comic register of the oboe (less vibrato and more rude) used for caracteristic phrases.

    A soft trumpet, as a classic soprano sax, are very good substitution of the oboe, with stronger (louder) sound (good for band or outdoor performances for instance).

    Gosh. . . I wish I new enough about orchestration to be able to give an answer here.

    But I learned a lot of cool "tricks" tonight!

    Thanks!

    This is a little tool I constructed in Excel. It's a Random Ensemble Generator that creates instrument combinations which could be tried if they seems interesting. This is the very first version of it, and you can only select how many instruments and if to exclude any. There is no manual - I guess it's kind of self explanatory. I made this toy to boost imagination and to come up with combinations that might be less than ordinary but still interesting to try out.

    There's is to different versions, one for Excel97-2000 and one for 97.
