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
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
Thanks for the link. I’ll take a look.
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.
