    Instrument range question

    I've just come across my first "limited range" issue with GPO, and I'm just curious as to what motivated the choice of range for some instruments.
    my clarinet is missing juuuuuust a bit more.
    except surprisingly, the Eb clarinet has the same upper limit.

    Lots of things influence the eventual range choices in instruments: Judgments about common usage; player comfort zones in the original sessions; decisions about the quality (or lack thereof) of specific samples; and how far a top sample can be successfully "stretched" before formant shifting becomes objectionable; among others.

    If you only need "juuuuuust a bit more," you may wish to use the pitchbend control to eek out another couple of semitones.
