Mỗi khi tìm thấy một tổng phổ (full score/arrangerment…), ngoài việc tìm hiểu các thông tin kèm theo bản nhạc, bạn nhớ đừng quên kiểm tra phần "Instrumental parts", đây là những phân phổ được tách ra từ mỗi tổng phổ.
Bởi các thành viên ban nhạc thường không thể chơi nhạc với một tổng phổ dài nhiều trang, vì thế bạn hãy cân nhắc việc tải về nguyên bản tổng phổ hay chỉ tải về những phân phổ rời (cho từng thành viên ban nhạc, cho ca sĩ…). Đối với những hoạt động biểu diễn ở đó bạn là người sản xuất/dàn dựng cho dàn nhạc, có thể bạn sẽ cần cả tổng phổ và đầy đủ các bản phân phổ.
Ngoài một số bản nhạc được upload ở định dạng PDF, trang Scoreexchange này cung cấp chức năng transpose để người dùng có thể điều chỉnh lên tông hoặc hạ tông các bản nhạc trước khi tải về, việc này giúp người dùng có được bản nhạc ở đúng tông mình tìm kiếm.
