Demo scores of orchestra

Post by ZenMusic » Wed Jul 15, 2020 3:47 am

Are there some Finale files I can download of orchestral music ? (compositions that I can playback to hear)

Looking for modern full orchestra .. especially with a large percussion section .. The Planets or more modern.

thanks

playback results really depend on which sound library you are using.

there is a basic, but relatively not bad (considering it's free) one that comes with Finale.
and there is the somewhat boosted (ie: more instrument choices and more instrumental effects) version of the same library that you can purchase.

then there are others, like NotePerformer3 that are inexpensive and quite good, and seamlessly integrated into Finale.

and considerably more expensive - and proportionately better quality - ones that don't quite integrate as easily with Finale.

Hi. Thanks. I have the latest version of Finale and it has the Garritan library.
I would just like to see and hear some orchestral scores created with this.

I have dozens of orchestral scores, mainly from soundtracks, that I have created from Finale and the Garritan sound library. I've been thinking of compiling them for my own website. It's a great hobby and they sound great. Here's a sample of "The Forest Battle" from Star Wars Return of the Jedi. Scratch that, it won't let me upload a mp3 or wav file. You could send me your email as a private message and I will get in touch with you. Thanks,
Eric
