I’m orchestrating for a musical theatre pit. I have a woodwind player who is doubling (Flute, Clarinet, Alto Sax).
How should I handle the instruments in Setup? Should I have one player and assign all three instruments to that player, or should I have one player with just one instrument … say, the flute … then write everything in Concert C and transpose the Clarinet and Sax sections after the fact in the Reed layout? Or should I have three players – one Flute, one Clarinet, one Sax – and combine them into one Reed book / layout (one staff) later?
New to Dorico, so talk to me like I’m an 8-year-old!
