    Mockup: "Aunt Marge's Waltz" from Harry Potter & The Prisoner

    Unfortunately, I had to stop not even halfway through. I don't have the sheet music, this was all by ear.. and I'm pretty bad at figuring out what instrument is doing what. I could've continued a bit with the brass at the very end, but in the original mp3, I'm hearing something a lot bassier than a tuba... what's lower than a tuba?? No clue. I think maybe the Opus tuba just lacks oomph, but I don't own SAM Solo Sessions, otherwise I would've used that. Anyway, this is usually why I never do mockups.. they're a b_tch and they take a lot of time

    So here's what I've got. It's quite strong up to 0:23, then that's where I just give up. If anyone knows where I can get the sheet music, that would be a world of help.

    Sounds really good so far. Are the woodwinds Opus?

    Opus 1: flutes, clarinet, harp, celeste, glockenspiel, cello & bass pizz, violin staccatos after 0:19, tuba, piccolo
    Horizon Series stuff: French Oboe, Epic Horns
    GOS: violin pizz, violin sautille (before 0:19), violin detaches
    True Strike: piatti
    London Orchestral Percussion: triangle

    I think that covers everything.

    Hello Sam,

    You can find John Williams study scores here:

    Most excellent!! Thank you. Incidentally, do other composers offer study scores? (Shore, Horner, Elfman)

    Oh look what I found: http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/store/...2&item=5447775
    This isn't the full score for the pieces listed, is it? Because if you look at this closeup page from Two Towers:
    http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/store/...983080&page=03
    That's for the oboe. If you look where it says "Evenstar", and load up that track.. it has the oboe playing the part of the vocalist. Doesn't seem right. So, $85 for some weird arrangement? Yet at Alexuniv, I can get Williams' scores for cheaper than that, and it's the real deal? Can someone explain this to me? I have zero experience working with manuscripts.

    Also, what is a conductor score? It seems to have all the parts..but the LOTR conductor score is pretty cheap ($9). What is this exactly?

    Hello Sam,

    To my knowledge, with the exception of Williams' study scores, very few composer's film scores are available for purchase. You will find however reduced scores for individual instruments or voice with accompaniment.

    A conductor's score is simply the version the conductor would use to conduct the music. In the case of the Williams study scores, they oftentime represent the re-arranged concert versions of the pieces as opposed to the versions appearing in the film.

    I did a mockup of the beginning by ear some months ago as well.

    Sam: I love the whole sound you've gotten there, may I ask what kind of reverb, EQing etc. you've done? I think I might have to look into that french oboe - it sounds amazing.
    oh, and about it being "bassier" at the end - can it be because that part is being played by both tuba, bass trombone and bass drum?

    a lot of the conducter's scores that are for sale for around $10 aren't exactly true to the original - some might still be good, especially those for concert level, I've bought a few, but I mostly just use them as kind of guidelines, and then listen to the recording to fill in the holes / make corrections.

    K,

    No EQ'ing on this one. GigaPulse reverb, 3 instances, used "large hall" as a base and modified the mic positions. Changed the wet/dry levels to match the original recording (as closely as I could).

    True, the tuba could be doubled with something else.. hard to tell. That's why I'd like the sheet music, but as you say, a lot of the sheet music out there are just other arrangements..not the true originals.
