Orchestration and Engraving
Whether as part of our recording services, transcription services, or as a standalone project, our studio crafts finely detailed orchestrations and produces publish-quality sheet music. Our studio musicians are well-versed in both Classical and Contemporary orchestration and we are fully equipped to prepare parts and scores for a number of projects, including recording sessions, concert performances, jazz charts and more. Our orchestration and engraving skills encapsulate standard performance and notation practice for any instrumentation or ensemble type.
To commission an orchestration or engraving, to request a price estimate, or to request a consultation, please contact us.
Many of our clients use vastly different workflows, so we are well equipped to accept several types of materials from which we can craft an orchestration. Most materials sent to our studio for orchestration are either condensed scores or incomplete projects that we adapt for the requested ensemble. However, we are also prepared to work from MIDI files, XML files, audio recordings, handwritten scores, etc.
Recently, we have had an increase in the number of notation files in Sibelius, Finale and Dorico. In addition to having expert-level experience in all three of these notation programs, we also have equal skill in all the major DAWs (ProTools, Logic, Cubase, Digital Performer, etc.) and can craft orchestrations from these programs as well.
Once the project is completed, an electronic copy will be delivered to your directly via email or a file-sharing platform (ie. OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.). All electronic copies will be submitted as PDF documents, as our studio will not release our notation templates or fonts. Hard copies will be mailed to you directly via US Postal Service, upon request only. All hard copies will be printed and (if necessary) bound at the studio.
If you are unsure if you should need a hard copy, or if you are unsure about what format the hard copies should follow (ie. paper size, staff size, binding type, etc.) we are happy to consult on this topic.
