Services

Part copying

Sibelius, Finale and Dorico part extraction and layout from score files. Our team of professionals has extensive experience creating parts from handwritten scores, as well. Professional layouts with page turns and cueing are critical, and we adhere to decades-long Hollywood standards and MOLA guidelines.

Proofreading

Our high standards for music are in place to ensure that the music that goes out our doors is exceptional in quality. Unlike some of our competitors that send parts out with little or no proofreading, it has always been our philosophy that another set of eyes makes all the difference.

Midi transcription

Our team works in a number of DAWs to create sketches from MIDI. We work closely with composers and orchestrators to make sure that MIDI files are cleaned up and all of the material is accurately represented in the sketch. Our process is the industry standard, so it’s thorough and efficient.

Audio takedowns

Doing audio takedowns can often be one of the most difficult tasks in the music business, and knowing the right amount of material to transcribe (and what to leave out) is a delicate balance. We are relied upon by top industry artists and film studios to create accurate audio takedowns with extremely fast turnaround times.

Printing

As an extension of music copying, we handle professional printing for recording sessions and live shows. Our paper and binding specifications are the industry standard and truly the highest quality. Having worked on hundreds of film sessions, we understand the importance of having the right paper and binding to keep stage noise to an absolute minimum.

Librarian

Sometimes just preparing and printing music isn’t enough. Because of our extensive experience, we are often called upon to work on-site with artists and orchestras to ensure that the performance is top notch. Being a great music librarian involves more than just ‘passing out parts’ and our expertise puts everyone at ease on a production.

Project management

Large projects can require many different services, and it is crucial to have someone in your corner that can keep all of the details together. Our systems are our greatest strength, so we are here to help with all of your project management needs.
