Explosion Presets

Instead of exploding to staves in chronological order, the user could create presets to copy notes in non-chronological order.

Example 1 of an explosion preset

  • staff 1 explodes to Flute
  • staff 3 explodes to Oboe voice 1
  • staff 3 explodes to Oboe voice 2 but an octave below
  • staff 2 explodes to Clarinet

Example 2 of an explosion preset

  • staff 1 explodes to Violin I
  • staff 2 explodes to Violin II
  • staff 1 explodes to Flute but an octave above
  • staff 3 explodes to Viola

Examples in the book by Samuel Adler “The Study Of Orchestration” p. 253 - 255


In his book this structure is referred to as voicing or spacing. The user-generated presets should be accessible with keyboard shortcuts.

Yes, I agree that it would be good to have some presets of this kind. Maybe in future!
