    Thanks, Mats: it's very cool!

    Is the "GPO Only" option supposed to work in the 2000 version? I'm getting non-GPO instruments in the selection.

    Non of the options are working actually, this is a "beta version". Only "Number of instruments" (cell C9) is affecting the outcome. Other options are (at least should be) greyed. They are there just as an outline for coming feature possibilities.
    However - you could go to the second sheet named "Instruments" and either put a "Y" in column E for the instruments you want to exclude - or put a "0" (zero) in column D (or space it out).

    I'm planning to implement more features in the future, but I don't know when.

    Thanks again: it's still very inspirational to me as a bit of a game/challenge to make the random ensemble work!

    Exclamation Re: Cheap Orchestration Tricks

    Hi,

    I just joined up and am just wondering if someone can put me on the right track. I'm using Sibelius at the moment and it seems that when I used percussion I don't get the full use of instruments on any clef I choose. I'd like to use the percussion clef and even change the instruments around so I can play a C above middle C for example and get a snare. Either way I'm only getting a few of the instruments that the Kontakt keyboard loaded with Bas ic Orch Percussion has available. I'd appreciate some help... thanks.

    speaking of octave combinations:

    another nice light melodic sound for slow moving melodies:

    harp+ vibes+ orch. bells (in 3 8va )

    very nice over mid register muted strings.

    I appreciate your spreadsheet. It opened the path to experimenting with many interesting combinations.

    My favorite trick: cut and paste.
