Orchestration error: (empty orchestra)

I’m trying to set my own db. Generated 2 databases (spectrum and mfcc). When trying to run the tutorial patch with my test db I get an error:

orchidea.solve: error: orchidea: orchestration error (empty orchestra; please check filters)

I was looking for some orchestra file or anything that could have filters but can’t find it. Any help would be appreciated.

when you generate a new database you are responsible of naming the files so that Orchidea recognises instrument (this is explained in the help patch of orchidea.db.gen I believe).
In other words, the files should be named like this:


After you do this, you can use the instruments available in your db as orchestra. If this is what you did, then please check partials_filtering and put it to zero at first, than increase it little by little.
