Where is the best place to buy conductor's score sheet music?

I’d like to try digitally recording a full orchestra tune going off of the actual sheet music. Like, using sample libraries and midi, but using notation as the source instead of going by ear. I’ve never bought a piece of sheet music that was for a full orchestra. Does anyone know the best place to go to find that? I don’t have a particular piece in mind so I’d like to be able to shop a selection.

Hey Mike you can’t really get that type of manuscript… you can get smaller notation paper from most music shops but I’d suggest getting a subscription to Sibelius or download muse score (which is free) and write on that :slight_smile:

They have full orchestral scores, but they can be pricey depending on what you get, but I’ve bought Star Wars, Beethoven and Saint-Saens scores for ~$55-80.

I just realised that I totally misunderstood the question. Ignore me and take Matts advice :joy:

I’m late to the party but if you’re still looking:
IMSLP has a lot of public domain conductor scores that you can get for free:

Film Music: OmniPublishing has amazing scores at a very affordable price. They also have analysis of each score. You can find work from Herrman, Powell, Elfman, Silvestri and many others

Thanks for the links! That’s exactly what I was looking for, especially Omni Music. Going to do some browsing right now.
