    Temporary Euphonium

    I dont know if anyone else has tried this but I had a need to make GPO make an Euph. sound with the range. As everyone might knowhue tubas range limits it to a high G which is unacceptable. Whats more there are issues with the sound not having enough edge in the lower range.

    In fooling around with GPO a little bit I found that if you assign either solo tuba 1 or 2 to a channel, lets say channel 1 and assign the equivelant horn or trombone to the same channel, it will mimic the sound and range of a euphonium.

    The horn works best because the timbre is naturally very similar to that of a tuba<due to them being the same type of conical brass instrument, also due to the fact that they are of similar size>, thus allowing you to transition between the different elements of the range more seamlessly. Adjusting the individual volume of each sample is a must to get the sound that you want, but I found that setting the tuba to -15.1dB and the horn to -12.4 dB gets the closest sound when using solo tuba 1 and solo horn 1.

    Its not perfect, but it will be passable for band and brass choir arrangements until the marching band and concert band libraries are released.

    Interesting, I'll have to try that. Thanks for the tip.
