Are there any potential negative consequences if I were to add a Horns a4 VST instrument to a Solo Player? I’m thinking of something like this:
Section Player - Horns a4
Solo Player - Solo Horn 1
Solo Player - Solo Horn 2
Set it up this way:
Solo Player Horns A - Horns A4 and Solo Horn 1
Solo Player Horns B - Solo Horn 2
If I needed a Horns a4 line then Solo Horns A could play it, or if I needed a solo or multi-voice line the player could play that. This would save me a Player listing. Multiply this savings with each family of woodwinds and brass and you’ve really saved a lot.
I should add there will be no scenario where I have to actually hand parts to a real-life player, so I’'m not concerned about that at all. I just use Galley View for composition and playback.
