Hi folks,


What's the best approximation of a Javanese Gamelan available in Garageband?  I know it has a supposed Gamelan instrument, but it doesn't sound like it's tuned to a Javanese scale- it sounds like Gamelan samples, but played in a normal chromatic scale, if I'm not mistaken.  (I could, of course, be mistaken).  I know that in Logic you can specify an alternate scale like Pelog, and that's what I use if I was just doing this at home..... but this is for a lab I'm teaching, and I have a roomful of computers with Garageband, not Logic.  Any way to get the GB instrument to use a more authentic scale?  Or is there a way to use Logic instruments in GB?
