  1. Hello all, I'm interested in internalizing the different tone colors and effects different instruments have (mutes, special bowing techniques, extended techniques, etc.). Does anyone know of an online database which has recorded samples of each instrument with different effects? For example, I'm looking for a site that could provide audio of a Horn in F playing muted (non-transposing), stopped, muted (transposing), and open. This would be as a substitute to someone who didn't have access to live players who could demonstrate these effects in person. Many thanks.
  2. Quick question. It's time for me to go out and buy another music manuscript book (I prefer to write music on paper first, rather than directly into Finale). I'm looking for something large (11x17" or larger), wire bound, and with a reasonable number of staves for a page that size (18 or more; this would seem to be a no-brainer, but I've seen educational 11x17 manuscript paper with TWO staves). Do the manuscript enthusiasts of Young Composers have a recommendation for a particular book they use? Many thanks.
