Adding ensembles

You can add multiple players at once by adding ensembles, such as a complete string section or four-part choir.


In Dorico Elements, the maximum number of players you can have in a single project is 12.


  1. Open the instrument picker for ensembles in any of the following ways:
    • If you have started a new project, click Add Ensemble in the project start area.

    • In the Players panel action bar, click Add Ensemble .

  2. Select the ensemble you want in the instrument picker.
  3. Click Add Ensemble to Score.


The ensemble players are added to the Players panel, either as solo or as section players. They are assigned to all flows that originated in the project.


You can also add multiple instruments to your project at the same time by using a project template.
