This music has been transposed from the original key.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.

Static preview

The static preview shows a basic image of the first page.

Interactive preview

The interactive preview also shows a preview of the first page, but it's a bit slower to load. The preview is displayed using the Sibelius Cloud Publishing technology from Avid. With most scores, this technology will provide a higher quality preview, as well as being able to switch to full screen mode and also play the displayed music to you.

Printing after purchase

After you have purchased this item the Cloud Publishing technology is utilised to provide the printing mechanism for the music. As such, we recommend checking that the Interactive Preview displays correctly on your device before committing to a purchase.

Notes:

The recording is of the Kontakt Gold sounds. Things which I did to beef the sound up:

Double the horns - Horn I is playing French Horn sound and Horn II is playing French Horn Section

The Piccolo Trumpet is playing Trumpet sound and the Trumpets are playing Trumpet section sound.

As Kontakt has a vast percussion library which are not in the standard staff types for the percussion 5 lines I configured them to have crash cymbal on the space above the top line using MIDI pitch A#/Bb 6. I thought about the drum roll sound but found the 32 tremolo sound was good enough for that burst of snare ? I could have hidden it in voice 2 to get that playing back if I still wanted the 32 trem. showing.

I applied various bits of Live playback to bring out some notes i.e. the Timp line just wasn't loud enough in the mix so increased the Live velocity of most notes to 120.

There are other House Style and Layout options such as the Time Signatures, Text Styles, Staff Types, Trill lines etc.
