Call me ignorant (because I am here), but that look's not to difficulty to me. With a clever weighting (i.E. something like SQR, but a bit more sophisticated) calculation of the atonal values and a simpe brute force algorithm, it should be possible to generate the best 2600 sound values quite easy.

Is there something I missed?

Have fun!
