Hi,

Very impressive work, I haven't tried the template but I'm impressed with the distinct timbres of the various sounds! Thanks for all your efforts on this!

I guess it's normal for Ardour to save your path when saving the template, but maybe there should be a placeholder strng on the version you have on github, and instructions in the README on how to replace it? (e.g., with an inline sed). There may be a variable you can use in the template to refer to the local template folder no matter the installation, but I'm not familiar with the syntax unfortunately.

Hmm, I experienced this problem before and forgot about it! I tried to ask about it on the Ardour forum, but didn't get any answers. Last time I found a way to work around the problem, but I don't think it will work on this one.

Again, for being a fairly quick import from MuseScore, this sounds good to me!

Thanks milo and GMaq! To be honest I'm still not totally satisfied with the sound. I had some brass players listen to it yesterday, and they told me that the brass part isn't convincing. However I think there probably isn't much more I can do without getting a more professional set of orchestral samples.
