Project templates

Project templates allow you to start new projects that already contain a particular set of players and project library settings. For example, full score layouts in orchestral project templates have larger page sizes than in chamber ensemble project templates.

Dorico Elements provides the following project template categories:


Ensembles containing mostly woodwind and brass instruments, such as brass band or pit band.


Typically small ensembles containing only a few players, such as string quartet.


Ensembles containing voices, including popular choir arrangements, such as SATB unaccompanied.


An empty project template.


Popular ensembles commonly used to perform jazz, such as big band or jazz trio.


Large ensembles containing most Western instruments, including strings, woodwinds, brass, and percussion.


Ensembles containing only a single player/instrument, such as a solo organ, guitar with tablature, or lead sheet.
